Take Back the Knit
Take Back the Knit is a zine by Jae Steele of Montreal, Quebec. Each issue features articles about knitting from a feminist perspective, as well as a dozen knitting patterns. Issue #1 features "wintery" patterns, while Issue #2 features "summery" ones. A third issue has been in the works since 2005.
The first issue was printed on a photocopier and collated by hand, while the second one was printed offset with a colour cardstock cover. It includes contributions from knitting writers such as Jodi Green (http://www.jodigreen.ca/blog/), mk carroll (http://mkcarroll.typepad.com/) and the yarn harlot, Stephanie Pearl McPhee ( http://yarnharlot.ca/blog/).
It was this zine that inspired the creation of the weblog Domestic Affair (domesticaffair.ca) early in 2005, though the blog now focuses more on vegan whole foods recipes than knitting.
