  1. What an awesome display of knitterly talent!

  2. I just learned about this recently, so, alas, I did not send them anything. It does look marvellous, doesn’t it?

  3. My niece lives in Cambridge, but she isn’t a knitter and didn’t tell me about it. It looks awesome. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Somehow I got stuck on the zip-ties. (Even Googled them because I wasn’t sure what they were.) I wonder who donated THOSE?

  5. That kind of knitting just inspires you.

  6. That’s the bomb!

  7. As a proud local, and a contributor to the KNITcamBRIDGE, I can say: the bridge is every bit as spectacular in person as in those pictures — in fact, probably more so! Two of the photos from the KnittyBlog post were taken several days before the unveiling (by my papa) so the bridge was still incomplete!
    I’m not sure if I can post a URL in a comment without being blocked as spam, but there is a Flickr group dedicated to the bridge, and the photos are just astounding. (flickr.com/groups/knitcambridge/pool/)

  8. That is truly amazing!

  9. Might I say that I have been having a difficult time lately and to see how people can come together and create something beautiful makes my heart feel warm and uplifted.

  10. WOW! I used to live in Cambridge. Wish I could get back to see this before they take it down.

  11. WOW! I used to live in Cambridge. Wish I could get back to see this before they take it down.

  12. I’ve never commented on a blog before but I just have to say thank you for sharing that link for the CamBRIDGE. It just puts a smile on my face to see what knitters (and crocheters)can do to make the world a better place.

  13. Wow–that is awesome!!! I love it!

  15. “The bridge cozy will be in place until September 27th.” That statement and the photos bring a simultaneous smile to my face and a tear to my eye. Don’t know why that is, but…wow. Very special. Very moving. Thank you CamBRIDGE knitters (and thanks to Kay for the post.)

  16. what a view that must be…I think we should cover the world,it looks that pretty! thanks for sharing Kay, you always have a bright spot to share!

  17. Wow. Miles and miles of yarn and to be “re-purposed” for charity, how fun.

  18. Wow! I even got a little choked up whilst reading the article… (the hug part) :) Thanks for sharing it!

  19. Thank you for the link. I so admire the artist who comes up with the idea and then is able to convince others to go along with her dream and then see it through to completion. What an inspiration!

  20. Fiber friends in Canada outdid themselves with this one. Remarkable photo shot from above. The idea of reminding about the city’s fabric past is perfect. Thanks so much, Kay.

  21. Miss you guys. Hope all is well.
    LoveDiane

  22. Y’all okay? Kind of worried about you. Just tweet if you are okay…
    Love you to bits KT in GF now KT in Redmond

  23. where are you guys?? we need a M-D fix!

  24. Now that I see other folks miss you and worry as well, I don’t feel like such stalker. Hope all is well and y’all are just busier than all get out for good reasons.
    Wishing you all the best!

  25. Kay — Right after I posted my concerns, I saw your snippet with the article about what if the health inspector came into my kitchen? Horrors! If the kitchen sink is off limits for hand washing, the folks at my house are going to be walking around with filthy hands (at least we know to scrub the daylights out of any food that is dropped in the sink). I feel the need to add to my Clorox stash.

  26. ann is trying to understand al accents
    the mocking bird is on stage again
    she has a little twit on the right side
    of the page now and again
    i guess they are grownups do as they please
    without asking or leaveing a note

  27. I guess we could talk amongst ourselves while Ann and Kay are gone from the blog. Did they leave any good drinks and snacks? You check the refrigerator, and I’ll check the pantry.
    Anybody knitting/quilting/sewing anything interesting that you want to tell us about?

  28. wow.
