Scoutmob Discovers the Knitterati

Scoutmob featured a good Q&A on our installation today.

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!


And We’re In!

Took two days, lots of people, sturdy needles, great weather and some patience, but the Commuknitree project is in.

The Commuknitree Grove ... All In!

To enjoy it in person, which we highly recommend. Pictures are good, but they really don’t do it justice.

From 75/85
Take I-20 west to Exit 54 – Langhorn Street
Take a right off the exit and then take the first right you can (if you stay straight, the road dead ends)
At the stop sign take a LEFT onto Westview Drive
Take an immediate LEFT onto Napoleon Drive
Drive to cul-de-sac and park
You’ll see the path to the beltline off the cul-de-sac, handily marked with an orange and purple “you’re in the right place” tree!

It’s Happening! Phase 1 Install

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.

Enamored with Britt's fan stitch and color choices
