Male Knitters Are Total Chick Magnets

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Knitting could really help guys string along the ladies.

Just ask Vogue Knitting magazine’s editor-in-chief Trisha Malcolm, who claims that knitting is a “cool way for guys to meet girls.”

In fact, she says lots of bars in New York have picked up on the craft craze by hosting co-ed knit nights.

Mary Colucci of The Craft Yarn Council of America says that knitting is no longer considered just a lady’s leisure and it’s perfectly acceptable for guys to get in on the action.

She says masculine men including Matthew McConaughey and Antonio Banderas love to knit, which could be why they’re so popular with the ladies.

Colucci explains, “Younger men aren’t afraid to pick up knitting needles because they’re taken with the complexity of knitting and how involved it can get. Plus, it’s a turn on to women.”
