Evil Eye Gloves for March for our Lives

Evil Eye Gloves for March for our Lives

Evil Eye Gloves for the Match for our LivesI knit a pair of Evil Eye Gloves for the March for our Lives, because how inspiring are these young people?

Like the Pussy Hat, Evil Eye Gloves are a form of protest. And, they’re from the creator of the Pussy Hat too. As Krista Suh says on her website:

The evil eye symbology goes way back. The Evil Eye is an act of protection. But it is not just defensive, it is also an act of aggression – of willful gazing, of not turning away.

Individually, to show the eye on the palm, you can put out your hand in a “stop” gesture – as in, we must stop gun violence, enough is enough. In a group, you can raise your hands above your head to show the eyes – this is the universal gesture of “hands up don’t shoot” and a reminder of how vulnerable our children are in a country with weak gun control.

There is something really powerful and poignant about mittens for gun control.

I whipped up just one pair of Evil Eye Gloves, and stuck pretty close to the recommended colours. Someone in my Stitch and Bitch group knit ten pairs. How amazing is that? And each pair was different – some were made in her old school colours, others with fun fur cuffs… and all were done in time for the march.

We sent her amazing offering and my paltry one off together. I included a nice note.

Evil Eye Gloves for the Match for our Lives with a note for the marcher

You probably can’t read my scratchy handwriting, but it says:

Dear Marcher,

You are amazing.

We see you and are so inspired by your actions.

These mittens won’t make a difference. You will.

All the best,

Rachel

And that’s something I really believe. Knittin’ mittens won’t really change things. Protests might. Voting will. Lending support to those leading the movement (even in the form of mittens), well, that might help a little too.

Let’s knit a gansey

Gansey, guernsey, jersey. What on earth am I talking about? A sweater, of course. You know the sort I’m talking about. A deliciously cabled, blue sweater, perfect for cold days. You might call it an aran sweater, or a jumper. You almost certainly do not call it a ‘knit frock’ like old books do. Whatever […]
