Gender Rules

Posted on | February 7, 2016 | Comments Off

Dear Short Answers:
I recently read an article that said that knitting is very good for your brain and your hands, especially if you have arthritis. I decided to try it and I love it!!! The problem is that I’m a man and people give me quizzical looks when I take my knitting out at church or in a restaurant.  Is there a snappy answer that will stop the gawkers?

Dear Knit:
Oh, don’t sweat it. Consider it “sensitivity training” —  stepping out of traditional gender roles always has a price.
