In this episode: Apologies. Revisiting knitted skirts – the Lanesplitter, and the Claudia – with thoughts, questions and comments. A lot of knitting, but not a lot of progress this week, so we finish up with VJJs. I know. You’re shocked. Zabet Stewart discusses the importance of nomenclature, then Annie Modesitt and Donna Druchunas discuss cuddly fluffy lady parts and the US Congressmen who need them. I wrap it up with some thoughts about privilege. It sounds disjointed, but it’s really alright. We don’t know how that happens. It’s a mystery.
Participate in the Snatchel Campaign by visiting their website, signing up to the Ravelry Group, knitting a womb or a snatchel, and then sending it to someone who needs it. Your support will brighten up the otherwise dull House or Senate floor in our nation’s capitol, and help keep the US government out of a womb near you.
