More knitting celebrity

On Friday evening, I picked up the current issue (#34) of Bitch magazine, “feminist response to pop culture”, because I’m quoted in an article by Wendy Somerson on knitting and activism (“Knot In Our Name” pp.36-41—my stuff is on pp.40-41).

Having now read the article, it’s given me some stuff to think about—particularly regarding mainstream culture/media efforts to minimize the progressive aspects of the recent popularity of crafts, especially knitting. Hopefully I’ll manage to convince myself to write more about that once I’ve thought it through…
