  2. Why Knit with attitude

    Hello Maya... I refer to the email I received today.* Knitting is for myself and many others a creative art and very therapeutic. However when knitting is used for political statements and activity it takes away from the magic and efficacy of this beautiful craft. I would urge you to think carefully about the statement that you and your group...
