Today is a big day in U.S., civil rights history. As of June 26, 2015 a sect of our population can no longer be discriminated against when it comes to being in committed, loving relationships. Federal law now permits legal, same sex marriage. It is now, as it always should’ve been.
There is significant LGBT representation in the knitting, crochet, and craft industry, so I feel especially moved to publicly show my support. When I have no words, I often go to my needles, which is what I did today. Regardless of whether or not you knit this swatch to frame, stitch it onto a pillow, or make the above photo your Facebook profile picture — it’s my hope that you hold the sentiment in your heart. Love is love, my fellow humans. Be kind to one another.
