OK... I don't read (Russian?) - but some of the MWK boys are featured in this blog:
I saw MMario, Aaron, myself, Craig...
anyone know how to translate? I'd love to know what they are saying!
Fave quote (and pic): "I and my friends on knitting (knitting boys) in boxers, but we still knim and socks tied"
Bad translation, Joe, or poetry? Edit just a bit and it reads like ee cummings:
"Profoundly mistaken misconception
That knitting is a hobby only lady.
Men also knit, more like knitting
and what a man!
Knitting should not be attributed to gender things!
Speak, men and knitting are not compatible
- it's like to say that a woman can not play golf.
Stupid sexist stereotypes
must be deferred
Here's a direct link to a bad Google translation:
This is great. Congrats to the lads mentioned and now I can [hopefully] remember how to get things translated. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.
Wow, that's a trip to see many of your names on the page! Not to forget the beautiful pieces that they gave credit to. Cheers, Sid
yup - kinda neat.
For Google translator, try
Then copy and paste the Russian text in the box and it should automatically detect Russian as the native language. The translations are a bit difficult to decipher, but some are pretty manageable.
Congratulations, boys, on the fame! I think it's neat that knitting men are being noticed around the globe.
Thanks for the note, Kyle! And thanks for the translation tip, Kerry! It was a bit rough, but I got the same idea from it that you did.
Geez, I remember the days of college when we called the worldwide web the "Information Superhighway." Hahaha, how things have progressed!
"He's not just knitting, but still comes up to a svyazat." Who knew? :-)
Yeah, I get that all the time.
Here's the google translation:
I thought Kyle was using the royal "We"...but he was actually talking about the group...LOL
If you go to the above site, then use Google translate, you get a reasonable translation of the Russian. It's all about men breaking out of stereotypes and knitting. It mentions the MWK mentioned above with links to their blogs. hope this helps.
I clicked on recent events and got an encoded page but by hitting shift ctrl alt at the same time and clicking on the x all was revealed, it took a long time to down load. Unfortunately I don't speak Russian lol.
The link does not seem to work
