the manly history of knitting

hi everyone and Merry Christmas!

I was looking for some resources on male's influence on the origins and development of knitting as a hobby and such and aside for some info at menknit.net, the information is mostly false, crediting women with the invention of the craft in the 15th century and them doing the production knitting, etc. Most accounts I have heard have women not even being taught to knit until the last couple of centuries, men being responsible for all production knitting, men starting the first guild, etc.

I am sure there are varying accounts, but does anyone have any online resources that are more man-centric?

Thanks bunches! Hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday!
