Purple pants and politics

I was going to write all about the hilarious mishaps involved in sewing these clothes for the adorable Purl Rabbit (and, believe me, there were mishaps).


I was also toying with the idea of writing a bit about my concerns about the skinniness of this rabbit.

I was all set to write a witty piece on the complexities of blogging and feminism and the making of cute crafts, and then I read the Yarn Harlot's post for today. And then there was no more funny. Please go read it right this second if you haven't already.

(I am beginning to worry that the Purl Rabbit, while very cute, may be the Kryptonite to my super-hilariousness. But let's not get ahead of ourselves.)

You could call her "Bunny Friedan." Might that help? Please continue to be funny. That is all.

Kim - That is brilliant! I think I just might call her that very thing. We'll do everything we can to bring funny back ASAP. :)

Sometimes things just aren't funny. Thankfully there are intelligent, thoughtful, funny women who use their powers for good, even if it isn't humorous.

I would rarely, if ever, be classified as a feminist and yet the story in Stephanie's post infuriated me. That kind of ignorance is an insult and a disservice to not only women, but all humanity.

I love Kim's idea. Bunny Friedan suits her pefectly.

Now off to email my Senator.

What a cute outfit!

I can't even believe the stupidity of the judge re: the Yarn Harlot's post. I don't even know what to say.
