yarnbombing for tolerance

Some things from my home country really make me sad and angry. Like the violent responses (especially in some parts of the country) to Gay Pride parades. So, as that time of year approaches again, and I cannot do much from far away, apart from posting messages of support on Facebook, I am happy to see that some knitters back home are doing their bit. This little yarnbombing event, on the main (and highly disputed) site of the Split Gay Pride, really warmed my heart today.

I started knitting completely by accident, when I was visiting my parents for a holiday in 2008. On a boring Sunday afternoon, I decided to dig through their stash of books to see if there was anything interesting to take back to my apartment. A knitting manual happened to be one of the books I found. I got curious, my mom immediately dug out her old needles and yarn stash (which she hadn’t used in a decade at least), and in a few minutes we were both casting on - she by memory, I by following the instructions from the book… :) Since I normally prefer learning from books, this was ideal.. I took the book home with me, and very very soon - I was an addict.
