:roflhard: Knit nekkid! :roflhard: THAT’s what I’ll do and DH will never complain about knitting again - I could spend as much on yarn, needles, books… whatever!
I didn’t realized that this had been often discussed - sorry. It just hit me last night and in a very irritating way, I might add. I think my DH was under the impression that I’m one of the minority rather than the majority. He is very proud of everything that I’ve made and brags about my work. He is also quite protective of the things that I’ve made for him. I guess he just honestly did not realize that knitting has now crossed the generations!
I think that you guys are right, all of the crafts seem to be making a big comeback. My DBro. does cross-stitch - he’s in law-enforcement and has a high stress job. He says it helps him relax and stop thinking. Maybe that’s a part of it - we live in this high stress, fast paced world and need our simple escapes. I also think that it may be a yearning for what previous generations had - a connection or whatever?
So… I proudly KIP (but watch for wandering children!) and I give knitted gifts and I love making new friends like everyone here! You guys are seriously a wonderful and interesting group of people. Your stories inspire me and make me laugh. Seeing your work makes me itch to try something new and envious of your fantastic yarn finds. I am so glad to have found this site and the wonderful people.
