We do not report a tale of research success, but one of struggle. With yarn, space, gender, guerrilla resistance, aesthetics, narrations, and, finally, ethical approvals. The title of this editorial refers to female knitting practice and expresses a bottom up, self-ironic and maladjusted approach towards one’s own business school existence. We seek to encourage readers to try out new, arts-based forms of resistance at work, to bring in the aesthetics and the body when all words in the seemingly rational discourse fail.
