Male knitting population increased by two

Here's Mr Softball working on his scarf. He caught on really quickly. Did four rows all by himself.

No, Mr Softball is not in agony. He's laughing at someone's comment. To his right is Alpaca Boy, who was a more typical beginning (meaning every knit stitch was accompanied by a lot of swearing).

And yes, I kept my end of the bargain. I played softball that evening.

Fabulous! I'm amazed by the amount of men of my Dads generation that can knit, alhtough don't. But recant tales of being taught when they were children and made socks etc!!

Congrats! Glad that they let you photograph them!

I suppose it is too late to let them know about the "stitch 'n pitch" at the Tacoma Rainiers(cheney stadium) (it's tonight)
