I feel the need to re-post this every couple of years. This is one of my favorite tattoos. When people see it for the first time they think I just like to write on my hand. They don’t realize its a tattoo until they see me again and it’s still there.
After a very long knitting hiatus, I jumped right back in with this sweater. Took 24 days from start to finish.

I don’t think I’ve seen art of an old mermaid (mermatron? mergranny?) before.

"Labeling women as “crazy” is a way of controlling them. It may not be something planned or pre-meditated, but the ease with which men call women “crazy” says a lot about them. Calling a woman “crazy” is quick and easy shut-down to any discussion. Once the “crazy” card has been pulled out, women are now put on the defensive: the onus is no longer on the man to address her concerns or her issue, it’s on her to justify her behavior, to prove that she is not, in fact, crazy or irrational. Men don’t even have to provide any sort of argument back – it’s a classic catch-22; “the fact that you don’t even see that you’re acting crazy is just proof that it’s crazy.”"
