Men Do Knit

one of my passions (passions = obsessions) is knitting. yes, i am a man who knits. and yes i'm a gay man who knits. men have been knitting for centuries -- straight and gay. i don't know what the current statistics are but there are many sites and blogs dedicated to the men who are into the fine craft.

VogueKnitting , well known for their technique books and magazines, has a sister magazine called Knit.1. the fall/winter issue, hitting the stands in november, will be dedicated to men.

here's a sneak peak at the cover



so even though the upper right-hand corner clearly states "the men's issue" who are they targeting? i mean look at those needles .. phallic wouldn't you say? mabye it should read, "the gay men and straight women's issue"?

hi keith, one of my favorite badboys also knits, russel crowe. a red-blooded hetero male.

i've tried my hand at knitting and after a 1/2 coaster and 1/4 scarf, have hung up my knitting needles, at least temporarily.

OK...this is all the encourage and inspiration I need. Hot guy, cute hair, funny little smile, nice sweater, and just the right needles. Where'd he get those---Good Vibrations? Can I buy the knit.1 magazine there too?
