Rachael sent me a really nice email laying out the particulars of an ongoing project by ArtYarn, involving knitters and crocheters from across the globe. The project consists of small knitted or crocheted pieces that are then wrapped round the 1st Floor banister of the Manchester Craft and Design Centre (see photo above). The project runs until December 2009 and you can view the Yarn Forward blog here, to see how the project is progressing.
Newest Update: The submission deadline has been extended to December 2009. You can send your piece here:
