How We Finished Knitting the Bridge

(Guest Post by Christina Papp) I heard about Knit the Bridge last summer from my friend, Kitty Spangler. What a cool project! I wanted to get involved, but, as often happens, life got in the way. I finished my colorful panel in the nick of time. Then, just before the big installation weekend, my schedule […]
