Where KtB is Headed in the New Year

Happy New Year! Knit the Bridge lives on in 2014 with railings, railings, railings… We are still re-purposing railings. With 900 railing covers, we’ve only got 400-600ish left to re-purpose.  Piece of cake. We’ve had a plethora of railings-turned scarves and blankets come in over the past month.

Now that they’re sorted, we’re wondering what to do with all these things… That’s where you come in! We’re looking for folks to […]

The Spinning (Paper) Plates Awards. And the Winners Are…

We thought it’d be appropriate to give out Spinning Plate Awards (named after our dear summer […]

With Panels Practically All Delivered, Railings and Tower Pieces Get a Second Life

It’s been over a month since Knit the Bridge came down.  My, how time flies!  We wanted to share with a quick update of how your lovingly hand-stitched panels and railings are enjoying life after the bridge. The panels had a quick turn around time and were laundered the Sunday and Monday after the installation […]

The counties of Pa that participated

A Final Look at the Maps

As those of you who’ve been following the Knit the Bridge adventures know, we’ve had a goal of 100% participation from each and every Pittsburgh neighborhood and Allegheny County municipality… and, we got pretty darn close! We use the term “participation” broadly.  Part of the design of KtB included having many different ways that folks […]
