“I went down to the rich mans house and I took back what he stole from me, ain’t gonna let the system walk all over me” this song was performed in church yesterday and it took me straight back to my semester in South Africa as a junior in college. I attended a church in Cape Town every Sunday and would also visit local churches with the people i interned with at The Red Cross and this song was sang almost every week. The one we sang was a little different; it went “i went to the the enemy’s camp and i took back what he stole from me...Satan is under my feet” it was always *the* most energetic church song and so hearing this version yesterday with the hot mess time we’re living in was perfect. Our message yesterday was basically that Trump didn’t usher in this new racist and sexist system it was always this way but maybe his taking it as far as he is and the organized resistance and awakening to peoples plights will actually lead to the creation of an actual free and just country. I definitely butchered that but hopefully shed some hope on this day!! If anything listen to this beautiful music. #mlk #mood @middlechurch

I needed to give an interesting fact about myself for the “Face Book” in my new office. I decided to put something different from knitting so I said that I can quote Moonstruck line by line. #skillsthatpaythebills #cherforlife #moonstruck #greatestfilmevermade #ifyoudisagreewecanfight #everythingistemporary #weareheretoruinourselves #awolfwithoutafoot #abridewithoutahead #whoelseusesthesehashtags

Knitting up a rainbow cowl and cheering on my niece at her swim meet. Love her to death but probably never coming to another swim meet it’s so hot and loud and triggering all my undiagnosed sensory processing issues 🤯

Knitting this sea glass scarf on my couch with a steaming hot cup of coffee is where i want to be right NOW but alas there are dentist appointments, basketball games and dance classes and the dreaded post office 🤬 🤭 This cowl will look just like fruity pebbles and moonstone currently listed...if you want to preorder it send me a DM or order any cowl in my shop and write “sea glass” in the order notes!

So I’m old and can’t get the “top nine” app to work on my phone so I used the analytics to see which posts got the most impressions and I’m happy to announce that it was the one where I said Fuck Neo-Nazis!! Thanks everyone, let’s continue to make their lives hell in 2018. #happynewyear #fucktrump #punchanazi

I’m updating my Etsy shop as we speak...check it out! 💻 I’m experimenting with only listing things that are already made. Why you ask? ❓Because starting on 1/8 your girl is leaving her part time job for a full time job at Girl Scouts USA!!! 👧🏻👧🏼👧🏽👧🏾 Super excited but will also have way less time ⏱️so I’m going to switch to this new system of knitting THEN listing. Let’s see how it goes!!!

Very little sleep and a lot of partying over here but didn’t want to let the holiday pass without saying Merry Christmas and thank you so much to everyone who has supported Queens Knits in any way this year!!!! I started my etsy shop to make some money and have a fun, creative outlet when my days consisted of changing diapers and puréeing baby food but it has turned into so much more than that. I’ve gained invaluable friendships and found a home in a tight knit community of creatives and business owners and learned a lot about social media along the way which unexpectedly helped me to get a job and it’s because of you awesome people so THANK YOU 🙂🙏🎄Love, the Gibson Family (minus my husband was most likely standing outside in the freezing cold with all the men smoking cigars) xoxoxo
