Greenwich Knit Time A Greenwich Village venue is redefining the options for an old-fashioned guys' night out. The place is called Knit New York. Its mission: to fight the stereotype that knitting is just for women. The store draws dozens of men to its weekly men's night where customers gather to exchange knitting tips over beer and hot dogs. An advertisement on the shop's Web site asks "Are you strong enough to knit and man enough to purl?"
