March for Science - Oh My, What Can I Knit in a Week?

     We have one week to go before the March For Science in Washington, D.C. and Boston and other large cities.  I found a few more quick knits you can do up in a day, or week.  Here's some cool choices if you're marching in hotter areas.  Or perhaps you already made a wool hat and you want a backup headband just in case.  Remember to knit in Green and Blue for a coordinated effort.

And the original PussyHat design done in green or blue would be awesome!

It's been a journey together these past few months as we knit our March For Science Hats.  I've really enjoyed pulling these Friday posts together of hats for everyone to knit.  We have some amazing designers out there and Ravelry is a wonderful resource that is greatly appreciated by me.  Hopefully you've found some great knit patterns there through my blog posts.  This is a serious endeavour, but I hope we will also enjoy not only our knitting, but the march to come.  We've just started traveling together and the road of resistance isn't short.  So enjoy your efforts, take breaks from resistance as you need it and come join us at the Facebook group  "Resistance Knitters", where we encourage each other as we knit and protest.  Activism can be exhausting emotionally and knitting creates a perfect counterpoint to this.  So, here's hoping we are successful!  I believe we will be!!!

Friday Protests Hats for The March For Science


     We are at the last stretch of knitting hats for the March For Science.  It's April 22nd in Washington, D.C. and many other cities.  The following weekend is the Peoples Climate March.  Here's some quick knits and lighter knits to do up.  Try to focus on Green and Blue for a unified look.
