A plethora of knitting and crocheting patterns to make a uterus! The article was originally written to encourage knitters/crocheters to send a uterus to congressmen who vote against reproductive rights. Feminism AND crafts!

Pauline Swanberg has been crocheting since her mother taught her when she was 6 or 7. She’ll be 84 in August. But, with the help of her friends and neighbors at Buckner Villas, she’s keeping up with her craft for a good cause. Swanberg and the other ladies in the group are working on holiday gifts for soldiers overseas. The crocheting project is part of Operation Gratitude. Over the past two years, they've made close to 1,000 scarves that went to Afghanistan and Iraq. They plan to do 500 more by September. All the work is done by hand. Learn more:

Kids love learning crochet: "Kaylee Foster, 9, of Duncan, was apprehensive about taking a crochet class. “I’ve never crocheted before and it’s very fun,” she said. “At first, I thought it would be boring but as I got into it, I thought it was cool.” Foster was one of six students of various ages taking on the challenge of crochet at the Chisholm Trail Heritage Center’s Crochet Summer Camp this week. Neva Kitsmiller, who was instructor, showed the students several basic skills and will spend the week helping them with their projects. “I taught at Fame Academy for five years and I love doing it,” Kitsmiller said. Foster said that it helped to have a great teacher like Kitsmiller." - See more at:
