Not just for your granny — these guys started a men's knitting club.

What's your take on these young men starting a knitting club?
This discussion is set to be extendable. After it expires, the content will remain, but all guests will be removed. After that if any guests decide to join it, more days will be added to the discussion

This is great! I teach all my students how to knit and they love it. They knit while listening to explanations or in between tasks since they can keep it in their desks. It helps keep them focused.

In many countries men knit.. I saw the fasting knitter I have ever seen in Peru and it was a man...many men knit. It should be accepted everywhere...who says only women knit? Silly.

And why not? Sailors used to macrame' on voyages to pass the time. That is like knitting with your fingers. It certainly improves dexterity. You guys should donate stuff to homeless shelters, and winter clothing drives. Get the word out.

Last summer, I saw a guy doing craft at Union Square, NYC. I found it so beautiful and relaxing. Doing crafts shouldn't be stereotyped.

Wonderful hobby for men too! I myself find it very relaxing and even therapeutic and the things you can create by knitting!

I commend you! Just started a quilting class myself. (I’m female, but learning a new skill is always great!)

Yes, we always need to keep learning new things.

Gentlemen - this idea may interest you. It is an Australian organisation that knits blankets that get sent all around the world to people in need. http://www.wrapwithlove.org/

This is so cool!!! Good for them! I love to crochet and knit and it really is therapeutic and there's absolutely no reason on earth why men can't do it too!

I agree about knitting and crochet too is great therapy etc. My mum loves to crochet and she does feel better making things.
