That being said. I couldn't agree with you more. Its a very therapeutic thing to sit and only have to concentrate on one thing. Plus its very gratifying in the end to see a finished product.

Good luck and have fun.

Yeah, it's kind of like video games, in that it forces you to completely concentrate on the one thing and nothing else -- therefore "relaxing" -- more or less! Lots of male knitters out there, some in the top designer list -- who knows, maybe you'll be next.

Anyway, just sticking in my "welcome to the world of fiber-related havoc" and have fun!
