Social conscience project
Okay, I am a tree hugger and a human rights activist, I'll admit it.
I happened to stumble upon this cool web site about an hour ago and figured I should share. If you:
Are against unfair labor practice in 3rd world countries
Can knit/crochet a 4"x4" square in your spare time
want to join a public protest against Nike Inc and above said labor practices
then click on this site and join in
Happy New Year!
One more thing that's less political :P
If you need to buy recycled silk yarn - I found this awesome price (AND it helps charity when you shop this link)
Recycled silk yarn
it's the cheapest price I've found (starting @ 10.95 a skein)
and you can use it for knitty.com's Unbiased hobo bag
Happy knitting today!
Thank you for the reference for recycled silk. I bought a few skeins at my LYS for considerably more and made a dressy scarf/shawl. I get such compliments everytime I wear it. Its dressy and casual all at the same time. I want to buy more, I have lots of ideas for it. For those not familiar with this yarn - its not the easiest to work with. It twists and stretches. But I used big needles, size 17, and wehn it was done, all the inconsistencies became beautiful.
