Male knitters are popping up more and more these days. It’s exciting to see boundaries being changed and people are being more open-minded about crafts. There’s a wonderful article at Greatreporter.com that looks at males in the knitting community. We also had an episode of YarnCraft featuring Men Who Knit & Crochet. As a male knitter myself, I got odd looks from subway passengers while knitting a scarf on my way to work. But it’s great to see that the number of males crafting is on the rise — one of the readers of the blog, Robert is working on the Tree of Life pattern right now, in fact. Also, one of my good friends, who’s a world-class rock climber was one of the last people I’d have expected to crochet, but he’s made some incredible things.
