Men Who Knit webring — meet your future members! The Minneapolis Star Tribune printed an article 23 January called Never mind the needling: Knitting clicks with boys. This article makes it seems as if they’re all into knitting hats — a counterpoint to the stereotype that all beginning female knitters want to make are scarves?
Craft Yarn Council of America executive director Mary Colucci said their new statistics are coming out next month and they’ll include male knitters. Is this a first? I, for one, am happy to see more male knitters joining the fold. That reminds me…I promised the guys down at Cafe Limbo I’d teach them how to knit cardigans!
update: CBS News jumps on the bandwagon!
