I am 3 months late for submitting my scarves for the Knit Your Bit Campaign for current veterans but "better late than never." (I just couldn't finish it for the May knit-a-thon.)
It's a simple pattern that stays flat. Bette Bornside suggested it: knit two, purl two and on the reverse row, knit the purl stitches and purl the knit stitches.
I've never knitted with wool in the middle of the summer and the last few inches were pure torture! But, for my veterans, I will do anything.
I also submitted two panels for the International Fiber Collective, which was completed in May 2008. The purpose was to make a comment on to express their concern about the worlds extreme dependency on oil.
And wouldn't you know it; at the time of the installation is when the gasoline prices started shooting up.
I read somewhere that artists can perceive the world around them differently from other, and Jennifer Marsh saw it way before any of us did.
She has finished her degree and is moving to the South. She might have another project like this! I hope to participate again, because I loved working with strange materials.
