    Man Enough to Knit; Strong Enough to Purl.

    I think this is absolutely terrific. Of course, some guys wouldn't think so.

    The girls I live with had a mad knitting phase just before Christmas. I gave it a go, (I really did, I knut* for a whole week!) but was dropping stitches everywhere, it absolutely did my head in. My mum got a really nice rag for Christmas though!

    I don't know about making them a babe magnet, but joining a knitting circle might be an easy way of meeting women who aren't the type to go out to bars and stuff like that...at least until all the men start trying that (sort of like all the guys who signed up for Home Ec class in high school thinking they'd be in a class full of girls to find out girls don't sign up for Home Ec because they're all in wood shop hoping to be in a class full of boys :biggrin:).

    I picked up knitting for a while, made a few ugly scarves and a pillow cover. It's pretty calming since you are just focused on counting stitches, so can clear all the other clutter out of your mind for a while to relax. It stops working as well when you improve your skill and don't have to think so much about every stitch.

    I think you're right on the money about this. Things like aerobics classes, dancing classes, etc. are largely populated by women. I don't think there's too great of a fear of men overrunning them for a while because most of us still have these programmed responses that say 'that's too girly, my friends would think I'm gay if I did that.'

    Does it really matter if they think that when you're getting all the women? Nope. Of course, the lost dignity might matter.

    Actually, what matters is that all the women in those aerobics classes or the knitting circle, upon seeing a man join, will just assume he must be gay (especially if he's coordinated enough to do the aerobics). Sort of defeats the purpose if he isn't. :rofl:

    I disagree completely. While yes they probably do just assume that, you have o look at the alrger picture here. Never say you are gay, make friends, get introduced to their friends, and voila, access to many women to date. TH women in the aerobics classes were merely stepping stones

    Knitting is for wimps...

    but who am I to judge, I wore a dress.
