There is an effort by Code Pink to create a hand-knit, pro-peace banner to carry to the White House on Mother's Day. I'm knitting (bright pink acrylic, ick, but it will stand up to strain and weather, particularly sun bleaching) four-inch squares which will be sewn by others into the larger piece, with contributions from around the country.
There was a comment (on the knitting forum where I announced my intentions) that Code Pink carries all kinds of negative baggage because of their behavior at Congressional Hearings.
And I'm thinking, maybe those Code Pink ladies should just sit there and knit.
I wish, actually, that I had the ovaries to risk arrest for peace, rather than something less involved. But to each her calling.
Comments open on this, after all, I make fun of PETA's methodology all the time. What do you think?
