Stop saying knitting is something only old ladies do.
I learned to knit when I was a kid. I knit scarves for my friends when I was in high school.
I knit when I became a stay-at-home-mom.
I’ve knit off and on my whole life. I didn’t consider myself “old” then and I certainly don’t consider myself “old” now.
Kids knit. Teenagers knit. Women of all ages knit. Men of all ages knit.
Knitting is not something only old ladies do.
So just stop it.
I see that you’ve been speaking to my husband. 😉
I’ve not encountered this. Yes, Stop! (I have had friends though whose families have said similar things.)
I must run with the wrong crowd. No one I knows says knitting is for older people. Knitting is for everyone.
My new knitting mentor has a Ph.D in chemistry, and she’s not old. Who said that to you? Someone who wants your yarn probably.
Did you ever see Nitty Gritty on tv….I think it was on the DIY channel but I lost track of it….Those girls and guys knit some really crazy looking things on there but it was so interesting to watch.
