I have always intended this blog to be about knitting and crochet only, but there are a few things I’ve seen recently that have made me think. You know that I’m pregnant, of course, but what I haven’t told you is that we’re expecting a girl. Somehow, that knowledge makes reading stories like this and this even harder than it was before.

I find it incredible, unbelievable, sickening, how children are treated just because they belong to my sex – and that of my unborn daughter. And I can’t find a constructive way to deal with this anger and bewilderment, if there even is one.
