So good! Also, if you’re local, the knitting group that met at K1 Yarns on Thursday nights has moved. We’re currently trying out Biblos on Chamber Street and plan to be there for at least the next several weeks (from 5.30 on Thursdays) – so it would be lovely to see you! Although I won’t personally be there for the next couple of weeks since I’m doing a little UK book launch tour. More on that exciting plan tomorrow.
We have enjoyed seeing people's Joy mitts on Ravelry and Instagram and although the kits are nearly sold out now, it is a pattern that can be done in many different colours, depending on what flag/colour scheme you want to use.
We have made genderqueer, asexual, non-binary and pansexual flag charts.
Introducing the first in an ongoing series of guest posts. I'm honoured that we're beginning with this vital letter from Emi Ito.
Emi has been outspoken about the cultural appropriation of the kimono in fashion and has helped many makers and designers find a less hurtful approach to naming their patterns and products.
