My son used to knit. Now he has a girlfriend who knits and decided it isn't cool for him. He started with single point needles, but very quiekly gravitated to machine knitting. Used to design his own ski caps. I think he was attracted by the tools. Maybe it's time to design some male "knitting equipment".

What kind of equipment did you have in mind? I'm game for anything that has to do with knitting! <G> I switch back & forth from machine to straights, to DPN's, and now circulars. I love to tinker with all tools too and find out how they work. I've repaired & restored several knitting machines to nearly pristine condition: Singers, a Brother, and a Passap. I love to take them completely apart, clean them, and reassemble. When I was a toddler, my Mom had to hide anything that resembled a screwdriver. I would take anything apart... toasters, phones, etc. What fun!

Oh! Oh!
I know
A set of DPNs made from the lifting rods of an engine, or a ball winder made like a fishing reel? A yarn basket made from a professional football team helmet?

Well I never said they were good ideas
