Just a Reminder: KTB Still Needs Railings!

Even though our Indiegogo campaign just wrapped up, you can still help out Knit the Bridge! One important way is by making black railing strips. These will be wrapped around the railings of the bridge bordering each panel. Here is what you need to know: How should I make them? Please use black acrylic yarn only. […]

Support Knit the Bridge

Pittsburgh Knit & Crochet Festival!

Knit and crochet are the basic building blocks of Knit the Bridge. Here at KtB we love knit and crochet because it’s accessible, it’s simple (at it’s most basic), the tools are affordable (think thrift store yarn and two pencils…), it’s social, and it’s addictive… And every year in the Pittsburgh area there’s a fabulous […]

Railings

Remember those Blues Brothers—in their BLACK suits, BLACK hats, and BLACK sunglasses—declaring, “We’re on a mission from GOD!” ? That’s what leaped into my mind recently while crocheting seemingly endless BLACK strips to border the panels on our bridge.  The vision personified my attempted self-motivating thoughts on the importance of this segment of KtB.  Black […]
