A couple of weeks ago when we picked Dakota up at Dalton's I offered to teach Dalton to knit because he complained he was bored. The child looked at me like I was insane..."Uh no thanks." I knew what he was thinking. "Men don't knit. That's gay." I know this to be untrue and it kind of bugged me so when I got home I got on Twitter and posted:
Looking for men in #coloradosprings interested in learning to knit to prove a theory that it is a chick magnet and not the opposite #COS
I got this reply within the hour:
nopaleroO @crazy_rebecca I want to learn to knit. I already crochet. [^^,] Well, it's been a while but know how to.
And the experiment was on! We twittered back and forth and finally tonight Juan, aka nopaleroO, came over for supper and a knitting lesson.
He was a natural! I mean seriously. His stitches were even and he did great (until I distracted him that is whoops) I explained my knitting-as-a-chick-magnet theory. Hopefully he'll take notes on any KIP (knitting in public) experiences he has to further my research.
I had a great time. Especially since another knitter was born and I got a great 365 picture lol
