Knitting...I met a manly man at the Public Market who, after a debilitating accident, had to quit his job. He felt unproductive and was very depressed until he discovered knitting! I bought a scarf because I was so proud of him and thought the paradox was funny...Men without pride-issues are adorable!
man with a record - for the world's longest (17 mile!) French knitted rope - he's only wearing a part of it. he should get a record for perseverance too; he has been making it since 1989!
