These knitters can take the needling
A special boys-only class finds young men mastering a skill and ignoring the teasing

By Lisa BlackTribune staff reporterPublished February 1, 2005

As he walked into his first "For Boys Only" knitting class, Will Conrad joked about showing his feminine side, but within minutes the Northbrook teenager was intently watching how to "cast on," or loop the yarn onto the needle.

Can't swing a cat…

Well, I survived my first foray to the Stitches West convention in Santa Clara this weekend. Went down there on Amtrak's Capitol Corridor since I thought CalTrain was still upgrading rails on weekends. A nice ride down with plenty of knitting time.

I don't think I've ever been around so many women in one place before... Stitches was just crawling with the fairer sex... spotted the odd long suffering husband or boyfriend carrying bags of yarn trailing behind their gals or waiting in line at the cash registers while their significant other foraged for yarn.

Bay Area Men Who Knit weekly meeting

Another chance for the boys to get together and share. Recount Stitches purchases and inspirations...

We handed out flyers at Stitches and even sold a few buttons... so hopefully there'll be more fellas joining our group in person and also online.

Monday Night Knit - Valentine's Edition

Many of you will be ladden with yarn and yarns from Stitches West... come show off your bags of swag...

Coffee comfy couches and quality company... who could ask for anything more? There might be handmade truffles from Spun Sugar if you get there early... Happy Valentines!
