I am new to this online community and glad to have a found it. This is going to sound totally wrong but here goes:
How come there are female members in this Men Who Knit community?
How are these women promoting and inspiring the art of knitting amongst men?
I discussed this with a knitting friend and she said that some people just HAVE to be members of every club around, regardless of the criteria for membership. And after sharing my thoughts, I realized that allowing women here demonstrates that this is about knitting, and knitting is a good thing, so what's the big deal. It's about sharing and not being stuck into the mentality of separation and exclusivity. And hey if it weren't for my grandma who taught me how to knit along with other needlework skills, I wouldn't be doing it.
