Tags: Current Events, This Blog is Self-Referential
I just came across a cool new blog with a cool recent post about crafting and politics and how, on her blog, never the twain shall meet. I try to avoid talking about politics on this blog because I think most of it has nothing to do with crafting and I don’t want to alienate all the cool folks who come by here on a regular basis. My other blog is more personal, and quite a bit more ends up there, so I don’t feel like the self-censorship is in any way suffocating.
Of course, there are some ways that politics can creep into knitting (many ways, actually), and it turns out that knitting has a vast political history. But aside from the few blog posts about gender definitions and “knitting for the troops,” there aren’t many blogs that combine knitting and politics. I’d like to see some. Not those from the US, that’s to be expected and (dare I say it) common. I’d prefer something in a foreign politick (Africa? Lebanon?), or possibly even Canadian.
Blogosphere, get to work!
