Today marks one week before my show opens! At this point, I can’t really say how the preparation is coming, except to say that I’ve just spent several months doing almost nothing but knitting for it, and if you gave me until the end of the year, I could easily keep finding things to knit for it.
For the past couple of weeks, I’ve been concentrating on the tiny stuff. This pile represents an embarrassing number of hours, and about one-fifth of the total number of tiny things to go in my installation.
Let me tell you, I am in awe of my Crystal Palace size 1 double-pointed needles. Those skinny sticks of bamboo have taken much abuse and are still going strong. And so, thank heavens, are my fingers!
The setup will start on Monday, but I’m expecting to be knitting up until the day of the opening (October 7th). I’ll be blogging the setup next week, so stay tuned for last-minute fiber drama!

the show is going to be amazing! good luck with all the last minute details.
I imagine you sitting on the couch with tiny balls of yarn all around and a big basket across the room where every few moments you toss a little knitted critter, with it’s unsewn ends flying like streamers. (And two cats racing to catch it!)
That is pretty much just what I’m doing right now, in fact!
Oh, I can’t wait to see how it all turns out! I have my fingers crossed for you – all that last-minute knitting has to be stressful, but I know you’ll pull it off and it’ll be AMAZING! :)
