pussyhat project

Saturday January 21st is the Women’s March on Washington, the day after the inauguration.

“The Women’s March on Washington will send a bold message to our new government on their first day in office, and to the world that women’s rights are human rights. We stand together, recognizing that defending the most marginalized among us is defending all of us.”

A friend sent me a link to the Pussyhat Project. It’s a grassroots project with a mission to provide the people at the Women’s March with a unique, collective visual statement – pink hats that look like pussy ears! Check out the link, the pattern for the hat is provided. If you are a knitter, they are asking you to make a hat or two and send them for people to wear as they march. I have several friends going to the march and I think I can make one or two in time for them to wear them.

I just finished one for myself to wear this winter. Anyone want to join me? Send us a picture of you wearing your pussyhat and we will post it on the blog!

    I have knit 10 hats for friends marching in DC and Boston. I will not be marching, but my hats will! I think the pattern on Ravelry for the KitKat hat, knit in the round with bulky yarn, is a lot quicker and cuter than the pattern they have provided. My earlier hats done on straight needles came out looking more like Yoda than kitty cats. If I can figure out how to post a pic, I will do so.
