The first knitting club for men!.
The first men's knitting club has been formed in Prague with the avowed object of 'propagating and teaching the art of knitting among men'.
The club has already 50 members, including business and professional men, young men, and old men with beards. The club meets regularly, when the atmosphere is filled with the steady clicking of the knitting needles as busy masculine figures we've socks, pullovers and other useful articles.
Photo shows, a bearded member of the club giving all his attention to the work in hand. His neighbours on either side seem equally determined to produce a nice even stitch.
