Knitting in the News

An organization called Government Free VJJ is encouraging women to knit uteruses and send them to male members of Congress with the note, “Dear Men in Congress: If we knit you a uterus, will you stay out of ours?

A woman has turned her love of knitting to helping British soldiers fight off the cold during Afghanistan's freezing nights. Tina Selby, 50, from Penarth, Vale of Glamorgan, has posted almost 5000 woolly hats to regiments in Helmand Province
