I totally agree with you Ann. And though this might be off the topic a bit, I really like your point that knitting is something for women of all ages. I am in my 20s and I love knitting; you can create so many beautiful things with yarns and needles - how many women can resist that? Also I feel that knitting is something that really connects people together - ok, at least it connects women who love knitting. I knit in restaurants, on airplanes and for once even in a department store when I was waiting for my friends. And a waitress, an airplane attendant and a sales lady talked to me when I was knitting in those place and said nice things about my knitting. We didn't talk much but I felt so warm and connected when meeting someone new who share the same interest with me - ok, maybe that's another good reason to knit whenever!
