|The Women of the Afghanistan War|
Thank you to everybody who takes an interest in my blog and crochet projects! It is highly appreciated, my blog is certainly not a little corner of the web I created for myself, but it is a space that allows me to connect with other crocheters on a level that transcends geographical barriers.
To find out why an image such as the above of women in Kandahar, Afghanistan is an example of what crocheting means to me, be sure to visit the lovely Little Things Blogged Blog by Tanya who interviewed me for her Untangling Yarn series of articles. Thank you for including me in your wonderful series Tanya!
On an academic/professional level I have been itching to do a visual- as well as discourse analysis of the poignant image by Majid Saeedi depicting women attending a crocheting workshop by the Malaysian NGO Mercy and will do so as soon as I receive permission from Saeedi to do so.
Enjoy your weekend, we are still very busy with our new lives here in Doha, Qatar and I barely have time to blog and crochet at the moment, let alone blog hop. I am hoping for quieter times soon, but first we are off to explore even more of what this society has to offer.
