Is it just me or.....?

is there something terribly wrong here? When I first read the Reuters story I thought- now that's odd. Because the concept of men knitting seems like one small step up from wearing women's underwear.

So I checked out the internet and found this . The headline says, "You are Not Alone". No, well maybe you should be. Here is another site dedicated to men and their attempt to get in touch w/ their feminine side here.

So, I guess it is really no surprise to see how the feminization of men continues in the Western world. The Christian Science Monitor noted it in 2003 and CBS moves the trajectory along its headline advocating knitting by men and boys. [shiver]

Lord, when the Psalmist said, "You knit me together in my mother's womb..." this is NOT at all when he meant! Fathers, husbands, sons I appeal to you. Bring back fencing, boxing, go carting racing but leave the knitting to the women.

You can't all be blind. Don't you see this is nothing more than a feeble attempt by "Blogging Women" the world over to get their men into double duty. It won't be long before blogging is the No. 1 chore around the house for women, while men just have to pitch in and do other less important house work.

Lets not forget guys, "Real Men Don't do House Work".

Bridges says he knits to relax. "I've tried meditation and it feels like I'm wasting my time. This is meditative and relaxing but I produce something out of it."

Well, he does have a point there.

On the other hand, knitting is a step up from playing soccer.
