Who said men don't knit and spin?

Below are a few shots of men doing...brace yourself............women's "stuff"...gasp!  Yes folks, I have actual digital proof that there are men out there that love to knit, spin and weave.  Contrary to what most men are led to believe, "male parts" do NOT, I repeat, do NOT fall off when men engage in these activities.   I'll admit, I did a double take when I first saw that there were several male artisans committing unspeakable acts of creativity, but upon closer inspection, I soon realized they were not only knitting, spinning and weaving, but they were doing it well.   It didn't take me long at all to become accustomed to seeing men sitting at spinning wheels, holding knitting needles or weaving at their loom, in fact, it was rather nice.

The man on the left is the vendor that has the rug loom pictured below.
The gentleman sitting at the wheel is 1/2 of a husband and wife team that dresses in period costume as part of the marketing strategy for their booth.

Everyday is a gift from God.
