Trump Stole My Knitting

Photo by Free the Image Those who have known me for any length of time know that since about 2006, knitting has been a huge part of my self-identity and a regular recharging activity for me in between building my business, doing social justice work, and writing and playing video games.

I'm not a knitter, and have nothing even vaguely resembling words of wisdom for overcoming knitter's block in general.

But the front page of today's Boston Globe featured this article: Knitting protesters grab back at Trump with pink cat hats
The day after Donald Trump is inaugurated president, the signature fashion statement of women marching in protest will be this: a handmade pink "pussy hat" with cat ears tipped directly at Trump and the word he uttered unforgettably on a hot mike. Call it an effort to grab it back.

Both playful and polemic, the cheeky pink hats will appear by the thousands at the Women’s March on Washington, D.C., and at similar demonstrations in cities around the world on Saturday.

"When I first saw this project starting, I laughed and I wanted to jump on board and I thought it was just fantastic," said Aileen Gildea of Arlington, who will be wearing one of the hats — knitted by her husband — to the demonstration. "To own the fact that we have power and we have humor and we’re not going to sit down and shut up," she said.


And that leads me to think that perhaps knitting one of those for yourself might be an effective way to get your groove back.
