Just the other day, Aidan found the short film The Knit Club on the Internet. All I have to say is... wow. I think my favorite part of the film is this: "As the Knit Club became more popular, even the Sewing Club tried to intimidate us..." followed by a shot of thugs beating the crap out of the guy. Some of the other films on that site are excellent as well.
Then there is this, a movie which illustrates how people from very different backgrounds can come together to share a common interest. It also suggests that the projects that they choose somehow relate to memories of their childhood. An interesting idea. I imagine there is truth to the whole "you knit how you are" philosophy.
I don't think our group will evolve into either an underground group where men gather around their favorite competitor to cheer them on, or a group where we only knit things that relate to our childhood. I imagine we'll be like most other knitting groups across the country, simply a gathering place to hang out, talk, share ideas, and have a good time.
I bet you thought this post was actually about me knitting a pair of shorts.
