A group of savvy Illawarra knitters have used their needle skills in the fight against coal seam gas.
The Illawarra Knitting Nanas Against Gas (KNAG) were busily clicking their needles together at Crown Street Mall's weekly markets yesterday, showing off scarves, beanies and signs, knitted to protest CSG drilling in the Illawarra.
Knitter Cherrida Hardaker said the group was keen to dispel myths about "radical" CSG protesters.
"This is a peaceful way of showing our support for land owners, the environment and our water," she said.
The group has about 30 knitters from across the region, as well as Camden and Campbelltown.
Artists are set to join the fight next week, collaging against CSG, and a ukulele group is keen to "strum against gas".
