Re: Real Men Knit and Sew

Matt, Thanks so much for the nice post including DudeCraft. Through running my blog, I've met (virtually) so many great guys who are out there making stuff these days. I think there's a real groundswell against couch-potatoism at the moment and it's very encouraging. People, male and female, are answering their inner voice that is saying: "create, create, create." Now, if we can just get rid of the gender lines altogether, we can have one big craft party.

On a side note, it's Johnny Murder who runs Manbroidery, not "Murderer". Oh, and don't forget our buddy from across the pond, Mr. X Stitch. http://www.mrxstitch.com/

Thanks again for the great post. It's nice to have another voice in the mix!
