Item 178 – RBG Lacework

Ruth Bader Ginsburg is known for her strength, her measured and wise jurisprudence, and her signature lace collars. But as all Gishers know, lacework used to be used to depict historic moments, so clearly you should crochet or knit a lace collar featuring a portrait of RBG or that conveys a message to her.

Item 167 – Recycled Fashion Overalls

Fashion has a huge carbon footprint: the textile industry contributes around 10% of global greenhouse gas emissions as well as 20% of global waste water, while 85% of textiles end up in landfills or are incinerated when most of these materials could be reused… to say nothing of the “fast fashion” clothing that doesn’t wear well and ends up discarded. But we’re changing that. Go through your closets and remove any clothing or linens that are not even donation-worthy anymore. Make the most fantastical rag-and-scrap-overalls ever created and model it as befits such a magnificent creation–with you hard at work in a garden or garage. You may waste NOTHING.
