“Rock 'n' roll is an attitude, it's not a musical form of a strict sort. It's a way of doing things, of approaching things. Writing can be rock 'n' roll, or a movie can be rock 'n' roll. It's a way of living your life.”
Even knitting or crocheting can be rock and roll. In fact, I think it is. I don’t feel like the stereotypical elderly lady knitting socks in a rocking chair by the fire surrounded by cats. Don’t get me wrong, that sounds like a great night! But I’ve never felt like that stereotype fits me as a knitter or crocheter. I’ve always been a weirdo alternative artsy kid. I couldn’t knit you a cable sweater to save my life but I can make you a giant knit cover for a lamp post covered in amigurumi critters in a heartbeat! My knitting & crochet almost always turns into yarnbombing, a form of street art and street art is pretty rock n’ roll! So where do I fit in when it comes to the fiber arts community? 🧐
I write this because my friend @knot.bad is creating a new thing called Yarn Punk. I don’t even know entirely what it is yet but I already know that I 100% identify with the feeling. In fact, the first time I heard him mention Yarn Punk, my immediate reaction was: I need that to be a T-shirt and I need to wear it 24/7. I have to imagine that A LOT of you feel the same way. Yarn Punk just feels right! So check out Vincent and follow @knot.bad if you don’t already and help support his Yarn Punk movement. You’re a rock n’ roll badass, a happy hooker, a knit wit, and a Yarn Punk. 🤟 Own it baby!
