    Yes, there is a men's knit night. It's in St. Paul, Minnesota at The Yarnery. I used to talk to a man while my son was in violin lessons, he was there waiting for his wife (she taught). I believe he said it was every Wednesday or Friday, I forget now.

    A new yarn store here, Yarn Stories, has craft night on Thursdays from 6-8 PM. There are 2 couples who come. One man does gorgeous petit point, doing earth, air, fire & water as wizards. The other is currently making knit caps for his nephews, but when he travels for business and is attending large meetings, he knits during the meetings.

    Every Wednesday morning at Maccabi club on Bury Old Road, Manchester, England a group of women of all ages meet to knit and crochet. We make garments for the needy in the community, lap blankets for wheelchair users, blankets are sent to the Ukrain for the poor community and hats for babies in Africa. So far no men have joined in The Big Knit but we would welcome them.
