The Last 60+ Days Sure Have Been Good for the Crafting Industry

By Persephone

So…I love to knit, crochet, and cross stitch.  What with school and work, though, I rarely get the chance to utilize these hobbies.  I’m usually lucky if I find the time to breathe.  However, President Cheeto’s election truly inspired me in this area.  I’d never seen a pussy hat until the Women’s March the day after his inauguration, but I learned rather quickly.  Between my neighbor and myself, we’ve used our knitting skills to help us cope through this difficult time…as you can see below.  There’s 15 completed so far…

We’ve had so much fun, too.  My neighbor (and great friend–I want to grow up to be just like her some day) loves to knit these hats when watching the news most of all.  She finds it calms her.  She also likes to glare at the yarn as she works, thinking, “Screw you, Trump.”  Her words, not mine.

This afternoon, she came up with idea (and the supplies) to start adding some fuzzy string to the pattern to come up with new textures and colors.  I loved this idea so much that I started working it into some bright fuchsia yarn that I just bought this afternoon.  I’m already halfway through, as you can see.

So, what do you think?  I think it’s turning out quite Cruella Deville, myself.

Man, Trump’s presidency sure is boosting the crafting sales.  And newspaper subscriptions.  And postcards.  Hey, look!  He is creating jobs.  Rock on.
