Tote That Bale



Thar she blows! One hundred pounds of knit and crochet goodness ready to be installed later this morning.

In one of my conversations with the MF people about the installation, someone asked how heavy the piece was so they could be prepared with proper materials. He said, "You know, 10 lbs, 100lbs, har, har." As if knitting could ever weigh 100 lbs. Obviously you are not a golfer.* Dude, my knitting regularly weighs 100 lbs. Or more.

I hope his sense of chastened amazement will continue as the piece is unfurled and secured. The worst thing will be if it looks tiny and unimpressive. Yikes, did I actually write that out loud?

No. The worst thing will be if we can't actually fit this behemoth in our car.

Pictures to follow.


* This is a Big Lebowski reference. If you don't get it, go see the movie fer chrissakes!

hey - I am psyched you even know it all! And a million thanks, not just for your great knitting, but for your moral support. See you soon!

it isn't tiny or unimpresive! Individually, so many blocks are beautiful (sometime the plainest, but knit with such care) collectively,it is beyond words.
