Soft, cozy, funny, and fits incredibly well. I'm wearing it under my robes when I get hooded! :D

Just added this soft blue-green cotton pussy hat to the shop for the Science March or Climate March. Proceeds will go to the environmental law organization Earthjustice!
Both pussy hats in my shop are now available in two sizes to accommodate a wider range of feminist heads!

About

crafting for good

I've dabbled in crafts of all sorts, but the meditative serenity of knitting has long made it my favorite. Although I've gone years at a time without knitting, every time I finish a project my hands start twitching for another.

This year, my love of knitting was rekindled by craftivism projects like the pussy hat and the brain hat, so I've decided to re-open my long-dormant shop to sell these pieces. All proceeds from the sales of craftivism projects will be to organizations aligned with their symbolism, and a portion of proceeds from non-craftivism items (like baby blankets and scarves) will be donated as well.

"All proceeds" means 100% of the sale price, minus Etsy's commission and fees, minus materials, which I've selected for their frugality. See individual listings for details on the donation I expect to make for each item.

In its previous iteration, this shop sold quirky t-shirts with nerdy messages that I silkscreened by hand in the bathroom of a series of tiny New York City apartments. Knitting is much better than that.
