This is so cute! My favorite quote: "You're knitting me!"
How can two sticks and a string be funny? You add every "burly" guy on a set!
Pasted this own to my knitting group... I know we will be talking about it!!
I thought it was a great prank. In the past, master knitters were male so it's not new for a guy to knit. I think it would be great if men learned how to knit and not worry about how it looks to other guys.
Simply Delightful... What a Hoot ! Luv it..
Actually THAT IS what I used to quit smoking, even though I'd been at it for about 3 years when I finally manages to quit. It's a great replacement for the "hand" thing, lol.
Knitting has SO enriched my life and that of my project receipients not to mention I may have saved my life :-D
Teach these guys how to knit 8" x 8" squares and they'll be able to help keep AIDS orphans in S. Africa warm. Go to knit-a-square.com for details. They have people there who join them in blankets for the children. It is winter there now and babies are sleeping on bare floors in near-freezing temperatures with no blankets.
I encourage anyone reading this to join in also!
Of the men you know, what percentage of them knit and what percentage care to learn? Therein lies the validity and humor of the prank. I know exactly one who is even slightly interested, and he is my 80 year old dad. His interest is restricted to watching me knit when I visit.
We don't have to pretend that the fact that most men couldn't care less about knitting means we are not enlightened. Reality isn't bad. It simply is what it is.
great prank-but seriously-how is it possible that, in our enlightened times, the idea of men knitting is viewed as a prank?
The wonderful story here is how Julia's knitting is making a difference. Men knitting? That could shift the universe!
Too funny! I know that had to of made Julia's day. :)
Funny! I think it's cool that so many people are now into knitting!
I love this! My favorite quote is "and that's all you need in knitting is just a girlfriend to get you started."
"That's all you need in knitting, just a girlfriend to get you started." I loved that!
I laughed as hard as Julia did. Thanks for posting - this was great.
that is hysterical! Julia's reaction is priceless. thanks for sharing that--it made my day! :)
