Free Ebook: Knitting as a Political Act
Just in time for anti-inauguration day, here’s my new free ebook, Knitting as a Political Act. It includes four of my polictially-motivated patterns, but It’s not just a pattern ebook, but a collection of ideas, tips, and activities you can use in your life to protest injustice and work for causes you believe in. People knit for so many different reasons. Some of us knit to relax or meditate and calm our minds. Some of us knit to make beautiful things for ourselves, our friends, and our families. Some knit for charity, to give warmth and love to those in need. Some of us knit to learn new things or to keep our hands and brains active. Over the years, I have knit for all of these reasons. But now, I find that I also want to knit as a way to engage in politics. I believe that whatever we do for love, whatever we are passionate about, can be used not only for fun and relaxation, but also to share messages about our values and to start conversations about important issues facing our nation, states, and local cities and towns. I hope you’ll join me in a journey of using our knitting for social justice, peace, and hope in a world that seems to have gone awry. Download Knitting as a Political Act now from Ravelry. Enjoy!
