Government Mandated Knitting

Content warning for the following:

  • Living under systemic ableism, and governments being terrible to minorities. Its me, I'm minorities.

Here is where I'll document the stuff I make, until writing about them stops being good to me.

Why is it government mandated?

I'm not disabled enough for the Disability Support Pension, so in order to live I get the Jobseeker payment, which needs you to be actively seeking employment (or becoming more employable). As part of my mutual obligations I had to apply to volunteer jobs, and take the first one that accepted me, which lead me to volunteer knitting. I will put my income at risk by quitting, thus the term Government Mandated Knitting is born.

While that's a bit miserable and dystopian, at least I get a lot of creative liberty to make stuff that makes me happy.
