There was an article in my university's student newspaper this week about knitting and it was written by a man!  he was proclaiming the benefits of having knitting as a hobby.  I was excited to see a guy who really enjoyed knitting and who was recommending it to other guys.

i'm 18 now, knitting since i was 9.  most people think it's quirky, although i have gotten the grandma comment before.  i usually just whip them with some circs and they shut up.  in all seriousness though, knitting has become a huge fad and is much "cooler."

i wish people would go back to thinking it was dowdy... maybe the craft stores would be able to keep yarn on the shelves then.

My husband wants to learn & I am in the process of teaching my MALE 11 year old neighbor to knit. He loves it!

Hi everyone ...thought I'd share my story

I'm 37 and been knitting since I was about 10.  My mother taught me the basics and then I studied some of her patterns and taught myself cables and more complicated lacy patterns. 

I have knitted all sorts of things...jumpers, cardigans, hats, gloves, scarves, and lots of baby clothes for friends and relatives.  I have never really been interested in knitting toys or dolls though.

When I've knitted in my lunch break at work some people have wanted to learn and some people have wanted me to knit things for them.
I've taught 3 girls at work how to knit and they have found it just as addictive as I do.

Not a day goes by when I don't knit at least a few rows ...even if I'm ill I do try a few stitiches.  Its my passion in life and I always have 3 or 4 projects on the go.

I sometimes knit on the train on my way to work and I don't care who looks at me or what they think either .....I just love getting home after work and picking my knitting.....ahhhhh hhhh

I love seeing how balls of yarn are transformed into something wonderful !!!!

Thanks

Traceyy, I see this is your first post on Craftster.  Welcome!!  We all would absolutely LOVE to see some of your completed projects!  Hopefully you plan on posting some in the future.  Nothing motivates me more than seeing someone else's beautiful creation.   Smiley

This is my first post here.  I'm on day two of teaching myself to knit.  Yesterday I couldn't get past casting on.  Today I've made about 10 rows!  I'm very excited!  I went to borders and really wanted to get the SNB book, but they were sold out.  I got Knitting for Dummies.  I think I'll be hanging around here a lot!
