2) Making beautiful things, even if they are flawed and just for you, is work too
I “learned to knit” in the last few weeks–my friend taught me first, then I got a book and looked at videos online. I cast on and have knit probably twenty rows since last night. I am inordinately proud of myself.
Fun things can be work too!
I will probably post more about crafts, and the so-called domestic arts, because I have a massive fascination with the domestic arts, but I also have a lot of ideas of women’s work, and issues surrounding the latent sexism in a variety of women dominated professions.
