Men Who Knit

Turn On or Turn Off? Knitting

One good thing to come out of the recession is more and more people have extra free time, and they're using it to take up hobbies. Truck drivers, particularly, have been hit hard as the usual two-hour wait time between drives became more like two days.

The Wall Street Journal says, while evidence is anecdotal, lots of drivers are taking up knitting and quilting. It's become so popular that one Iowa-based trucking company started a sewing club. It encourages stitching drivers to show off their needlework by featuring it at its headquarters.

Profession aside, would a guy who knits or sews be a turn on or off?

Anything a woman can do a man can do if he really really tries!

Do you find him physically attractive? I just think it's a photo that could prejudice the voting. If you want to show a negative result in a poll, put a non-model type person next to the question. I have no idea how the voting turned out. Guys knitting don't turn me on or off as I don't go that way.

There is a knitting club at my college. I know a lot of crafty guys, so it doesn't seem strange to me at all. I kind of wish my boyfriend was a little more creative. I highly value the trait.

Awesome! I like crafty people in general, but not only that, knitting is a solitary, quiet activity. I am an introvert, and would LOVE to know that a potential partner comes with built-in alone time.

I knit, and when I was in college I taught kids to knit and crochet at a camp - most of whom were boys. Fun fact: crocheting was started by fishermen in the 1200s (or thereabouts) in France to create fishing nets. A man who can make something useful = awesome.

That is just so cute. Haha. I'm totally domestically-challenged though (terrible cook, sewer, etc), so a guy who cooks and knits sounds incredible to me!

A little weird to see a guy knitting but also nice that he is creative and able to get past that it's a girly craft.

Yeah, I'd call it a turn on, especially if he can work a set of double-pointed needles as well as the guy in the photo! I am just learning to use double-pointed needles, so the help would be appreciated. Haha

i would find it weird if he knit, i think, but i would be impressed and happy if he could do simple sewing tasks like fixing a button (especially since i don't even know how to do that)

I'm terrible at crafting, and am always impressed by anyone who can knit well. I don't think the sex matters at all; skill is always a turn on!

I wouldn't call it a turn on so much as something that's a really usful craft to know, no matter what your sex. And since I'm not very good at knitting or sewing then if my guy was that would be a bonus. I think "turn on" is too big of a phrase for it, maybe it would imply that I'm easily turned on?? I don't know. Which I guess I'm not.

On. I love creative, artistic men! Especially ones that aren't scared of society and their standards/scale of "manliness" haha.
