acrylic yarn, knitted

I just finished my knitted pieces for the Des Moines Art Center’s Calling All Needles project, which will reimagine Georgia O’Keeffe’s painting, From the Lake No. 1, “in a large-scale community-made tapestry to be displayed on the Richard Meier building of the Art Center.” The Art Center is providing the yarn to members of the community and will gather hundreds of individual fiber submissions with which to create the large fiber piece. Submissions are due June 21, so I have plenty of time to turn these in (it would be fun to help assemble the big piece, too!). The reimagined work will debut on the evening of July 10.
