That MLK Sweater
For the past three years I have been featuring Suzanne's MLK sweater on my blog in honor of the birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr. I will repeat again this year because I'm so in love with this idea and in awe of Suzanne's mad skills.
|Suzanne's Sweater honoring the words of Martin Luther King, Jr.|
When I saw Suzanne's ("owlknits") sweater, I was touched by the words she chose. This is from Suzanne's project page on Ravelry:
I knit this sweater for a local art exhibition that was organized to honor the ideas of Martin Luther King, Jr. I used quotes from his “I have a dream…” speech to embroider on the front and back of the sweater: Front: Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred. Back: The whirlwinds of revolt will continue to shake the foundations of our nation until the day of justice emerges.
I am still blown away by Suzanne's sweater and her choice of quotations. One day I will make such a sweater for myself. Bravo! Excellent work, Suzanne, honoring an eloquent man and his ideas!
