Guys who knit Answered

I'm a guy, and I knit. Is anyone else a guy who knits?


I tried to learn to knit, but I don't have the patience for it. I sew all the time (just altered a couple of skirts for my wife yesterday, in fact) but knitting was not my cup of tea. I love the projects in "Knitting With Balls" though.

I'm fixing to learn how to sew and knit, if my sister will show me how

Sorry I got sidetracked. I can sew a little bit but not really good. But no I don't knit but I am going to learn

Just wanted to comment that I think it is awesome some of you guys enjoy sewing or knitting.  It is therapeutic for anyone.

My Gran tried teaching me long ago.  It wasn't one of my natural talents.

i don't currently knit, but i have. the wife (girlfriend at the time) decided she wanted to start knitting. of course the entire process befuddled her and she got REALLY stressed out about it so i had to learn to knit to show here what she was doing wrong. of course, the fact that i could knit better than she could only made her anger worse (and a LOT more directed at me) so i quit.

i do know how to knit fishing/trawling nets though. that's something i learned from my grandpa.

and i sew well enough to re-stuff all the decimated dog toys rolling around the house

I tried, but I am terrible.

#2 son can knit, but prefers duct tape.

Arrrrrrrgh, arrrrgh, sorry, I only sew.
