Knit Wall Street

by Edmund Kasubinski

I saw a short little blurb in today’s Metro (one of the trashier free newspapers) about a woman who is knitting clothing for the protesters at Wall Street.  Knitting being a point of interest of the class, I figured I’d post a little about Marsha Spencer, known more simply as Marsha the Knitter.

 

Here is an “ireport” from CNN.com:  http://ireport.cnn.com/docs/DOC-692648

And there’s an interesting article on the website, newdomesticity.com, where the terms “craftivism” and “yarn bombing” are used:  http://newdomesticity.com/?p=106

Marsha the Knitter is reportedly knittin’ stuff for the cold occupiers, which is some good old homespun DIY engagement.  Perhaps if all were to knit, then the world would be a more comfortable place.
