    Making A Knit Stitch
    I find that this method of knitting is easier and quicker, creates a nicer tension with less "rowing out" and is much easier on the hands (less wrist strain.) If this method is different than how you've been taught, give it a try and you may discover a new love of knitting blooming!

    Thoughts on color
    I agree with the possible gender connections being made and with the ideathat if you like and wear some colours well you are more likely to workwith them well. (I work with and write about colour so consider myselfpretty competent. But I'm a hard-core "autumn" and cannot get around myaversion to blue.) But there's another factor at work here that takes it out of the personaland the gender.

While a pub is associated with loud revellery and carousal, as an antihthesis to it, knitting is usually the favourite pastime of home bodies like spinsters and grannies, but now a pub in England will become the first to allow visitors to knit as they gulp down their drinks.
