OK, I'm a female, but I truly want to promote men's knitting. I have a sixteen year old son and I think he would get a great deal out of knitting but I certainly can't be the one to "inspire" him. I only know one guy who knits and he is WAY cool.
I live near Tacoma WA so here's a shout out to any of you guys in the area. Hope to see you at Madrona!
