The Revolution Will Be Knitted

mircoRevolt are sending a petition to Nike in the form of a huge knit and crocheted blanket to bring attention to sweatshop labour and the campaign for fair employment conditions. It's a beautiful object and a fantastic idea. Each square someone makes to join this political afghan is a signature on the petition.

The group are currently seeking squares to make up a border for the swoosh; any colour, any gauge, knit or crochet - it's up to you as long as the finished piece is 4" x 4". Send squares to:

microRevolt
PO Box 1659
Troy
NY 12180
USA
Maybe I could make mine out of unravelled Gap jumpers...
