Any other men in the woot community crochet or knit?
Just curious. Took it up a couple of months ago, on a whim. Have made scarves for kids, wife, parents & nieces. Next project is likely throws/afghans for the kids. I find it very soothing/relaxing.
I've had several other men come up to me and mention that they have tried crocheting or knitting, and/or that they currently do it. More than I would have expected.
I've also had multiple women talk to me about it - might be a good way to meet women, if I were interested in that sort of thing (married).
I use a Harbor Freight tool bag to lug stuff around. I had to draw the line of manliness somewhere, and all of the dedicated craft bags seem to have very feminine patterns. I briefly considered using a range bag, but then it felt like I was overcompensating.
Preference for Susan Bates crochet hooks, no yarn preferences yet. I will note that homespun is problematic for the beginner.
