When fibers can speak, it is loud, pink and pussy proud!

Back in December I knitted a pussyhat and send it away to the pussyhat head quarter for someone to wear when marching for women  rights this weekend the 21st of January 2017.

Today I received an email from the wearer of the pussy hat I knitted ! oh I can not tell you how happy and emotional I was ! here is her little message:

Thanks you!!!

Thank you so much for knitting my pussy hat.  I wore it with great pride!   The Women’s March on Washington was incredible.   Somewhere between  500,000 to over a million in DC alone.  The streets were packed.

The pussy hat I knitted that now live in the US with Lynn :)

Thanks Lynn for wearing this little pink pussy hat and for being out there supporting our future. It was a great idea to unit people from all over the world through knitting, crocheting and sewing. It is not late to make a pussy hat as it is just the start of a resistance wave all over the world. You should check out their hat tracker ! 

Pink dots are sprouting in America, Europe, UK, Australia, New Zealand, Israel,  Japan…. It is beautiful to see people getting together through fibers and fabrics! it was also so amazing to see sisters march all over the world, it is powerful!  I am going to make more of these little pussies and some using brioche stitch to be extra fancy ;). I believe that the pussy hat will be a statement so it is never too late to make one.

I love this picture from The Washington Post

I have to say that I am very emotional at the moment this thing got me hard … now I fear for the European elections…

BUT Just don’t forget that Whatever happens, we are in it TOGETHER! we stay ALL together ok !? everyone whatever their skin colour, gender, religion …. please stay together!

Love with all my heart and fibers xxxx
