Default Knitters Protest

Interesting and creative way to get your point across.

Get out of Mah VJJ!

"In the midst of Women's History Month, a new knitting and crochet group was borne across social media networks yesterday to protest the attacks on women's health by the Republican Congress. Inflamed by the recent Rush Limbaugh lambasting of Sandra Fluke and the never-ending attempts by males to control women's choices, a politics-savvy knitter from Colorado hatched the idea on Twitter to send every interfering male government representative a knit or crochet vagina, cervix, or uterus, marked: "Get your prehistoric laws out of my V-JJ! Better yet, here’s one of your own!”

2 users laughed. The question is: Are they laughing with you, or at you?:
3 users are now drooling and mumbling about pie:

Historically, heads rolled once the knitters got pissed off.

I'm Sansarya there. I'm sending a friend invite. You will be my second friend (I hope), including Trout.

I love Ravelry, too. I thought SL and WoW were time suckers, but geez, just looking at patterns can take me through a whole afternoon. Then there's forums...I get lost in there for days.

It's a time waster for sure. I managed to get 2 of my latest projects up but have no pics of anything else. Most of my knitting is done for gifts. I am debating on keeping the poncho though as I have few spring outerwear items.
My mom keeps eyeballing it though. >.<

Trout can add me as well if he likes. ^.^

I'm not on there very much - stupid life keeps me busy. But I'd be happy to add you! I don't know whether Oryx is on there or not.

Right now, I'm working on the never-ending sweater of doom. I'm right at the point where I start shaping armholes, so I'm going to have to start paying attention. Meanwhile, Oryx is churning out socks and squares for a blanket like there's no tomorrow. I work all night and add 2 inches.

It's fun, but I'll be glad when this project is over.

Aww. Quality over quantity!

j/k

A friend and I knit together a lot. She is extremely slow but turns out beautiful work. I knit a lot faster but it comes from a lot of experience. If Oryx is there I'd love to add her as well. I love looking at other's projects.
