Please contact Sally at firstname.lastname@example.org with Blanket the Library” as the subject line for info or questions. Dear Artist: I am sending you this announcement since you […]
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. Thanks to Judy Manion and countless other […]

We thought it’d be appropriate to give out Spinning Plate Awards (named after our dear summer […]
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 […]
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 […]
Timelapse creator, Craig Mattie, not only put together these sweet videos, he also helped with the actual removal. Enjoy!
