oh goodness.. you have quite inspired me to pick up my needles again.. :) ..

I was taught to knit by a lovely lady in a wool shop..and found it was a great thing to do while watching the cricket ( actualy a good excuse to watch the cricket[;)] )
then my first job.. all the office ladies would sit around at morning/afternoon tea and lunch..knitting

but the last thing I need is any more jumpers!.. time to pull out my Kaffee Faccit book and find something suitably complicated..

In Norway, everyone knits, men and women. When I was studying at the technical university there - medicine/engineering/ architecture etc - everyone sat knitting at lunch time and many through out the lectures.
My sons went to Steiner school with a lot of emphasis on handcraft and knitted some of their own clothes when they were younger. I taught them to use round needles, so much easier.
I dont think they would be seen with a knitting needle in their hands today tho, more the pity of it

Lots of times when I have been knitting in a cafe or in public, boys have commented to me that they know how to knit. I say, you went to Steiner didn't you? And they did. I always tell them, men invented knitting and they seem pleased about that.
I think many people don't realise how therapeutic knitting is. :)
