I am so excited that so many knitters are signed up to make meatheads for the installation! I am emailing everyone as they sign up, and later in this post I'll show you some pictures of the prototype.
But first, an FO. I finished this right before the massive hat caper started, and I wanted to celebrate some finished knitting before embarking on these hundred balls of roving. So here is the Wild Duck scarf.
And here is a close up of the yarn (from Adrian at hello yarn) and the double seed stitch.
I love it! Fabulous fall, here I come.
Now on to meatheads.
Here is the prototype, knit with roving and a cast-on edge of just 24 stitches. It took me 1 hour to complete. I'll also show you the back so you can see that I'm really not picky about the seams. And so you can see the size of the stitches compared to my fingers.
The kits will go out by Monday to everyone who has signed up. Continue to sign up in the comments if you want to knit a hat for the installation. I am so excited that so many people are doing this with me. The support is remarkably moving, and I love seeing all the blogs that are new to me and meeting all these new knitting friends. See the list at right. I encourage you to click around and see a world of knitting out there. Thank you so much everyone!
