I'm not usually into novelty knitting projects (though that smiley little uterus is pretty irresistible), but why not make something practical and subversive? I really like the RESIST scarf (top left); I think it's the shadowing in the lettering that really makes it. It also sounds like the book has some history of revolutionary knitting, along with patterns. And if that's not enough rebellion for you, Heather Marano's book, Crafting the Resistance, offers more ways to outfit yourself while you fight the patriarchy.
