Extraordinary Hats to Knit for The March For Science

      

     In previous posts (I'll list them below) I've covered simple knit hats and now I need to add a few more intricate hats to knit.  Remember you can knit a PussyHat (original design) and do it in green or blue!  Keep it simple if that's what floats your boat and also sometimes that's better for mass producing hats, for donation (Project Thinking Cap - Washington Donation Point).  But, sometimes for yourself or a good friend you want that certain special hat.  And I can't help but add hats I just like, like the Beeswax Hat for our bees and the Precipitation Hat because somewhere out there is a meteorologist marching (and it's a light hat!).  





      Have fun and be sure to knit in Green & Blue for unity and support of your environment, ecology and science, also scientists' efforts to protect this Earth.  Do you realize there are mass gatherings of scientists to protect the data about global warming?  Without a continuous stream of scientific data over a long period of time, proving a gradual global warming would be difficult, if not impossible.  Fearing that the data is at risk many scientists have been at the task of protecting it.  "Fearing climate change databases may be threatened in Trump era, UCLA scientists work to protect them" Los Angeles Times

   Come join me if you are inclined at "Resistance Knitters"a new Facebook group I created to encourage each other in the journey of protest.  Historically this is a long drawn out process, not an overnight success story (even though there will be good, uplifting moments like The Women's March).  I studied History and International Studies and I post a lot of news items and commentators and also knitting patterns for marches.   Quotes, books to read, and uplifting thoughts.  It's a place to post, and share what you're doing but also discuss the politics of the day.  And yes we're very Liberal.  I will not make rules, I ask for polite discourse and to be kind.  Anyone is welcome as long as we respect each other.




Happy St. Patrick's Day!
