None of the males on my side, or wife’s side crochets, I do.
In fact, the only male I know that crochets owns and works on a local farm that raises alpacas
to make its own yarn. The farm has a small store on site, and every Tuesday afternoon
they have what’s called stitch & b****, they chat, and knit or crochet. The times
visiting the store with wife, or wife and daughter, I was highly encouraged to join
their stitch and b**** club, all women. I had no desire to do so, and crocheted solo, or with wife.
The store was always warm and welcoming, it’s just something I didn’t want to do. Before becoming a mommy (now 2) my daughter joined a local knit and crochet club where she lives. The club comprised of mostly older women, some younger, no men.
Hobbies will appeal to a certain demographic more than another, so what.
It has nothing to do with race, gender, religion, or age discrimination.
Crocheted steady for about 5 years, stopped about 3 years ago, around same time started brewing.
Made so many hats, scarves, baby blankets, booties, mittens, baby sweater, many failures.
Hats are the hardest to get right, pattern, size, and colors. Wife and daughter to this day wear
a wool crocheted hat I made for winter. Over the years daughter would get a compliment
on her hat and was asked if her grandmother made it. I can imagine what was going through the
women's head when she replied, my father did.
