[There is] no need to hear your voice, when I can talk about you better than you can speak about yourself. No need to hear your voice. Only tell me about your pain. I want to know your story. And then I will tell it back to you in a new way. Tell it back to you in such a way that it has become mine, my own. Re-writing you, I write myself anew. I am still author, authority. I am still [the] colonizer, the speaking subject, and you are now at the center of my talk.

@keeshycrochets sent these beautiful pieces as the first to represent #Nevada (#Henderson) in the #lizardsmouth #yarnbomb. Happy to help you “thin your hoard” to make room for more 😬
Thank YOU for joining in and welcome to the Yarnbomb Collaborative!!!
9 days left to join in with my collaborators from 29 countries and 41 states on this massive global #yarnbomb soon to be unleashed in the #mountains of #santabarbara. Simply put a #knitted/#crocheted piece in any size, shape, color and stitch in the mail to the address in my profile by April 15th to collaborate with me.
