Last night when chatting with the knit peeps on #knitchat on Twitter, I had an epiphany. What if all of the knitters and crocheters who made a tiny boo-boo in their work, tied a red piece of yarn around the boo-boo and wore the piece as a symbol of loving ourselves as is? -A symbol of enjoying life without the need for perfection? Am I saying that no knitter or crocheter should ever correct their work? NO. Not at all. But what if, we celebrate one day a year where we all wear our red yarn tied-boo-boo knits in solidarity? What if we make a bigger, societal statement with our boo-boo knits about loving ourselves and being accepting? What if we create a red tie revolution one day a year to celebrate the beauty in everything? What if we use our knitwear to say that the true beauty in our lives is in the enjoying of life?
Who's with me? What if we designate the first Saturday in Oct every year as Red Tie Revolution Day? Everyone will wear a Red-Tie piece and take a pic of them wearing it. And we'll share the pics of people from all over the country (maybe the world) loving themselves enough to share their boo-boo knits! If I get enough interest, I'll provide more posting info.
If you're in - blog about it, tweet about, and link this post! Let's see how many we can get involved!
