Blanton Tree Project Installed!




Hey Y'all,
A couple of months ago my friend Maggie asked me to be on her team of knitters working to create a tree cozy nearly nine feet long. It was part of a bigger project put together by the Blanton Museum of Art and Austin's Knitta Please, who is known for her public acts of knitting graffiti. Knitting on a deadline with acrylic yarn had it's less-glamorous moments, but I knew that when the whole project went up-- in total 99 trees in one plaza outfitted in different patterns of the same color scheme-- that it would be really cool. I was right. The installation was last Friday night and you can now go over to the Blanton plaza and see this Knitted Wonderland for yourself. Meanwhile, my boyfriend took some photos of the installation. Check it out:

You guys did awesome. I like the small olive stripes. It helps pull the colors together. I'm still loading all my pictures from the event.
