Kristin, would you consider mentioning in your blog Warm Hats Not Hot Heads, the knitters' campaign to restore civility in politics? There's a group on Ravelry and we're also on Facebook. The idea is to knit hats--which embody the concept of every stitch working for the common good--for every member of Congress and every Senator, to illustrate our desire for our representatives to put down the poison pens and take up the business of crafting solutions to the various problems and challenges facing our country. This campaign was begun by your fellow knitbloggers Twinsetellen (http://twinset.us/) and SpinDyeKnit (http://spindyeknit.com/). Thank you!

Thanks for the link, Kristin. I went to India in the summer of 2009 and this reminded me of the handwoven fabric factory that we visited. We watched weaving on enormous foot operated looms and block printing similar to what is in the video. Didn't see any of the carving, though, which is incredible.

Hope you're staying warm and safe. My daughter in Hoosick Falls is enjoying her woodstove a lot these last two days!
