For some reason, I find it amusing to rewrite the Constitution to apply to a Knation of Knitters.

We the Knitters, in order to form a more perfect LYS, establish discounts, ensure knitting tranquility, provide for the common knitter, promote the local fibers, and secure the blessings of Zimmerman to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United Stashes of Knitterdom.

Article I

Section 1.

All legislatve Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Forum of the United Stashes which shall consist of a Fiber Shop and House of Stitchers.

Section 2.

Clause 1:
The House of Stitchers shall be composed of Members chosen every second Year by the People, and the Electors in each Stash shall have the Qualifications requisite for Electors of the most numerous Branch of the Stash Legislature.

Clause 2:
No Knitter shall be a Stitcher who shall not have attained the knowledge of Knit and Purl and have been knitting for at least one year, having completed at least 4 projects in that time, while also being an Inhabitant of that Stash in which they shall be chosen.

lol, wow. This is turning into a whole other spawn of literacy! We might have to create our own genre! JK, We could just publish a Constitution for Knitsters

And I agree with Rebecca wholeheartedly!

The size of it ALONE is a great reason to leave it as is instead of incorporating the ridiculously inappropriate amendments that have been on the table...


KK needs to stop mentioning politics on a knitting board

You're right, Kelly, we'll leave out the women's right to choose. . .





acrylic or natural fibers. It may lead to protests and derision, but we have to draw the line somewhere!

Well, if not a knitting constitution, I still vote that someone compiles a tip book
