My 13 year old son, Andrew, knits, crochets, spins, weaves, and does needlework. He's found it a great way to express himself, and make new friends when he knits in public.

This is going to sound evil, but my brother was most interested (as was my dad) when I told them that I just didn't think they'd understand how knitting worked (such a lie...) but now they understand the basics. :)

There's a young guy I met (he's in his early twenties, I think) who's been learning to knit just to make his girlfriend a Marvin doll (from Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy) for Christmas! I sure hope he keeps it up, but I don't know. I think this is only his short term goal.

I knit. I'm currently 21. I started knitting when I was about 19.
Depending on the guy, teaching wouldn't be hard.
I'm not much of an ordinary guy. Since I would rather stay home and knit something while watching a movie than being out and partying.
Though it does hurt my social life with the girls...
*sigh*

Falas find your local knitting store and sign up for a class or two, you'll probably be the only guy enrolled (or at least one of the few) and you'll surrounded by women of all ages!

Do I sound like Dear Abby?!

My 18 and 20 year old sons knit. The 18 yo spins, the 20 yo tats. Both of them also weave, whether on finger, floor or table looms. It was around when they were growing up, and they tried it and liked it. Now the 18 yo gives impromptu knitting lessons at school, the 20 yo is teaching his shipmates, and I miss having them dig through my stash to find the yarns/fiber for their next project. It gives a new meaning to 'empty nest syndrome'!

Wow, thats so cool that he can do all those things! Especially at that age!

I'm teaching myself to knit, and I'll be 13 this September (My goal is to master knitting before then).

Prince Eats-a-lotta who is 12, knits and sews. He makes all his gifts for his teachers. When he was in boy scouts, he earned extra money sewing patches for all his friends whose moms' didn't sew. Now he knits "blankies" for some of the kids he babysits. His favorite is kool aid dyeing yarn and then knitting it up. He also like to wet and needle felt.

He also (with help from me) is machine embroidering pin towels for his traveling baseball team to take to Cooperstown this August when the team plays at the Baseball Hall of Fame. This has made him quite popular with his teammates. (a pin towel is for trading pins with the other teams - gives you a place to hold the pins. we're embroidering team name, player name and number on each towel).

Bree, just wanted to caution you to be careful. Many would like to believe that knitters are all higher life-forms than others, but the truth is that this is an open forum that anyone can read (must be registered to post, but not to read) and stating your age and that you're looking for friends is really putting yourself out there.

Please be careful of anyone who approaches you and wants to get to know you. We want young knitters like you to have only good experiences!

My 43 year old husband just started knitting, and now my 16 year old and 10 year old sons want to learn to knit and/or spin. Having a pretty girl interested in knitting or spinning with him would sure hike the 16 year old's interest! He's in the middle of a scarf he's making for himself.

we started a knitting club at my school this year and we had a guy from our XC team join. He wasn't as into knitting as the rest of us were, but he did knit several scarves.

I've had quite a few of my guy friends asked me to teach them to knit last winter when they saw what I made! They're all about 20 (I'm going to be a senior in college). I think knitting could be an awsome way to meet girls or at least impress them a lot!

I learned to knit when I was 14, and am still at it at the age of 32.
