I Might Be In Magazines Soon
I thought this was pretty cool. A couple of writers for a couple of different publications have contacted me about possible articles regarding men knitting.

One, the Financial Times, is only an article proposal and may or may not ever be published, but the other one, Yarn Forward, is likely to see publication.

I was happy to answer some questions for them and rather enjoyed it. I am hoping to see at least one of the articles be published as I think it may help promote knitting among men, especially if it's published in a non-knitting publication like the Financial Times.

The writers are supposed to let me know when and if the articles will be published.

Oh, I almost forgot, I've also been approached about possibly writing a book but am mulling that one over as it would be a huge amount of work and I'm not sure I really have the time.

Congratulations!!!

You definitely must keep us updated with the potential articles.

And, if you ever do write a book, I would definitely buy a copy.

Yee Haw, Morgan! Way to go. I'd definitely buy a copy of your book. Your stories are always awesome. Heck, just the characters you come across while knitting on the road are great. I'm sure there's loads of stories in there. "Knitting Guy on the Road - Tales from a man with needles who's not afraid to use them".

Someone else mentioned that you should have some extra yarn and needles with you in case people want to try to knit, and that you should take all the swatches and make a blanket out of them. Imagine the stories you could get from each person. If the book was a hit (which, why wouldn't it be) you could auction off that blanket and give the proceeds to your favorite charity. Just an idea.

Keep us posted!
