    Even if our KJ wanted to do this project, me thinks there’s isn’t enough pink yarn to go around. 😆

    😆 I saw a news item about the pussy hats a few days ago and have to admit I like the idea of peaceful yet visual protest.
    Pink out Washington ! ! !

    Ummm … like yeah. Caturday is like 4 days away and although I’m a fast knitter, the mail peeps are not so fast so they’d never arrive in time and would end their life in some collection spot. Checked out article, might have been a good idea to provide a pattern. Still, the kit hats are sorta neat. 🙂

    But hey, any TDKer can take up knitting. Might be a good New Year’s resolution – but this being the day to ditch one’s resolutions … 😉

    You are brilliant MS,

    Actually hat is not all that difficult to knit. Not one to give up on Woman Power cause but would adapt as in using up some finer weight black/grey mix – more kit-like and pink hat, well not for me. I guess I’d have to explain the cause to peeps. If I get there would post pic, but can’t due to outdated browser issue. 🙁

    Might be an interesting project for N. who has taken up knitting, I’m helping her with this, natch.

    PS Didn’t you tell me that you learned knitting back in your schooldays? 😉

    Yes, that would make a Dorry hat (and I know Katzenjammer will not respond before tomorrow evening). I could simply make ears and attach them to one of my three black bérets (cotton, wool and angora).

    That is really simple knitting. I know how to knit, but haven’t done it in a long time.
