It's not over until the Cat Lady sings...

Foxy's silence is deafening.

and believe me, it's going to be a long time before that happens. The Rally for Women's Rights at the Rhode Island Statehouse, and all of the other simultaneous rallies in DC, throughout the US and around the world, showed that there's a vast movement rising and it's here for the foreseeable future.

How heartening it was to see so many Pussy Hats in evidence!

La lutte continue!

Pussyhattin' around...

Shrinking violet that I am, I rarely appear on my blog, but having knitted my first ever PUSSYHAT, in preparation for the Women's March on Washington on 21 January 2017, I feel compelled to be a role model for all Politically Concerned knitters out there:

Il neige aujourd'hui à Woodville, RI.  Mon chapeau Pussy me protège très fort. Should I stuff the ears to make them stand upright?  Or should I stick with the "Scottish Fold" look?

Gentle knitters, here's the pattern; make one for yourself and make one for someone else. It's a really quick project--maybe four hours, faster if you use chunky yarn and larger needles. Check out a wonderful knitting blog, photographer Gale Zucker's She Shoots Sheep Shots, for instrux on the bulky yarn pattern, and other good links.

True confession:  I can't be in DC for the March on the 21st, but will attend the Sister Rally at the Rhode Island State House that day.  Click here for info on and to register for The Rhode Island Women's Solidarity Rally. Wear your Pussy Hat! Find me there; I'll photograph you in your lovely headgear, and post it on this blog ex post facto.  (I'll also bring an extra Pussy Hat with me for a photo prop.)

And if you can't make it to the DC March or any of the fifty state Solidarity Rallies, just make a hat and wear it on January 21st.
