As a knitter, I’m always glad to see knitters bravely go where no knitters have gone before. This is a new one to me, and certainly serves as a useful twist to a generally useful hobby.
UPDATE: Boy, when knitting hits the presses, it does so big-time. Michelle Malkin blogs about radical subversive knitting in New York. It sounds so grim, and so antithetical to what knitting is about, which is creation, relaxation and beauty. I bet that generations of American knitters are rolling in their graves right about now. Anyway, if you’re interested in American History, knitting or both, you may want to get your hands on No Idle Hands : The Social History of American Knitting, one of my all-time favorite books. For most of American history, women considered knitting a patriotic duty, whether knitting for the Revolutionary soldiers, Civil War soldiers, WWI soldiers, or WWII soldiers.
UPDATE II: I don’t know why comments haven’t been working on this post. I just pressed a few buttons in my edit screen, though, and might have fixed that problem.
