Real Men Knit (?)

So I’m browsing Amazon the other day, as I’m wont to do over the lunch hour, and I’m noticing a surprisingly large number of knitting books geared toward male knitters.  Now, I do NOT have a problem with men knitting.  Or crocheting for that matter – there is a very industrious group of guys in Cali that started a non-profit to teach women in developing countries how to crochet – very cool.  What I do find funny though is the titles of some of these books.  If you were a man (or if you ARE a man, whatever) which of these books would you feel most comfortable toting around?  (Assuming you are man enough to knit, that is)


·          Son of Stitch ‘n Bitch: 45 projects to knit and crochet for men

·          Knitting With Balls: a hands-on guide to knitting for the modern man

·          The Knitting Man(ual): 20+ projects for guys

·          Men Who Knit & the Dogs Who Love Them: 30 great-looking designs for man & his best friend


You picked the dog one, didn’t you?  Admit it… J
