The Official Take Back the Knit Contest, part 1
The zine needs a slogan.
A subtitle, if you will.
-BITCH: feminist response to popculture
-BUST: for women with something to get off their chests
-Craftster.org: No tea cozies without irony or Rock is dead. Long live paper and scissors.
-Guerilla Girls: fighting discrimination with facts, humor and fake fur
-Knitty: little purls of wisdom
-Men Knit: Man enough to knit, strong enough to purl
-You Grow Girl: gardening for the people
So, Take Back the Knit: _________________ (your smart and witty words go here).
Think newer, hipper knitters learning from our grandmas; think community, think feminist; think crafty, think hip/kooky/fun patterns; think d.i.y. sensibility...
Can you think of something? I'll make it worth your while. The fine person who comes up with the winning slogan will receive:
* a complimentary copy of the next issue of the knitting zine
* the satisfaction of seeing your work on the cover of every future edition of Take Back the Knit
* guest of honour status at the next zine launch party (if you don't live in or near Toronto, maybe it'll be an excuse to come visit)
* even more than my undying love and devotion - my respect for your intellect.
Got an idea? Got a few? Don't be shy.

We have to complete part 1 of the contest before we can progress to part 2.
Suspenseful, ain't it?
Other zine mentionables:
Tomorrow's the final deadline for knit zine submissions for the upcoming winter issue. Get 'em in, folks!
And yup, you can still order the second issue. If it becomes unavailable I'll let you know by updating the ordering page. Actually, it'd be good to get your order in soon so I can hopefully get it off to you before I leave for Italy.
