Creative Loafing has a great slideshow featuring each art installation along the Beltline. I particularly love the Living Walls mural in Reynoldstown. But there are so many creative, talented people participating this year. It’s a big honor for us to be part of it all.
Thanks Scoutmob for the coverage and for being a local start up that makes us all want to wear a mustache! We look forward to staying in touch. Maybe our next installation will be adorned with some hip ‘staches!
Our friend Pam has a discerning eye and a passion for design – and the photography and writing skills to match. Recently she started Sweet Peach, a new website that celebrates the artistry of the South. It’s so fabulous, you should bookmark it. Visually delightful!
Pam visited our Communitree installation on the Beltline last week and worked her usual photo magic to showcase our pieces. Here’s Pam’s Beltline Knitterati article on Sweet Peach. Thanks Pam! We’re so glad you and your site are in our lives. Yay SE design!
Took two days, lots of people, sturdy needles, great weather and some patience, but the Commuknitree project is in.
To enjoy it in person, which we highly recommend. Pictures are good, but they really don’t do it justice.
Britt isn’t going to be able to make it for the official installation day next weekend. We took advantage of his early timeline to get some of his awesome pieces up (he probably has 15 or so total, earning him the nickname Britterati) and to go ahead and get a jump on all the pieces Sandy and I finished installed as well.
Sandy’s prepping her big installation: these cool granny squares that should cover approx 10 vertically feet. Sweet. Looks like Sandy’s dog Abby (seen in background) approves.
Update: here are Sandy’s granny squares after installation. Awesome!
knitting is a family affair. here’s John Ogden Swett enjoying yarn his own way.
not to sound too full of ourselves, but the grove of trees where the
Knitterati will beinstalling our final pieces sure is lucky. work for our part of Atlanta’s Art on the Beltline project continues with some colorful results, and rounds of Bloody Marys make for a great, chatty knitogether on a Saturday afternoon.
it seems that even Time Magazine had to give a shout-out to yarn bombing recently. is this a collective desire to add some beauty to urban spaces when the environment seems in such turmoil? is it just particularly enjoyable to make something hands-on and crafty outside of the digital world we increasingly occupy?
whatever the reason, we doubt we’ll be able to stop after install day in late August.
here is our first purchase of supplies. many were donated too. my entire guest bed is now covered in skeins of yarn, both vintage and new.
