Men Who Run With Sheep (and Sergers)

The female domination of the knitting and sewing enclaves, at least in the shops around my home town, can make them a little intimidating for those of us who don’t identify so much with the feminine end of the gender spectrum. I’m fully aware that women meet this kind of discomfort going into engineering and computer sciences and physics and maths and those are jobs, not hobbies. So I’m not complaining; I’m just explaining why I’m rather excited to find male-identified knitters and sewers online. They’re breaking down gender binaries from a different direction, and I thank them for it.

I’m still gathering sources, but here are a couple high-quality ones I’ve come across in my cybertravels.
