*Hi, Jenny Brown has moved to hijennybrown.com. Please come on over to read this post and see our new content!*
OK, I went to a training on how to cover a bridge in yarn…I mean, seriously? How cool is my life?
Today was the last training for “Knit the Bridge” (a project I’ve mentioned here before), and I cannot tell you how crazy excited I am for installation weekend! I’ve been named a team captain, and let me just say, this is the greatest honor ever bestowed upon me. Finally, all my days lashing yarn to polls and crocheting bricks has paid off.
I couldn’t believe how many folks outside of PA participated (although I think I’m very familiar with all four Wheeling pinners).
The ladies of Knit the Bridge are so crazy organized. They even had a sample section of the bridge for practicing our yarn-bombing technique. (I know it’s blurry, but how often do you get to take a picture of your husband learning to whipstitch?)
In fact, they said if we knew the number of our panels, they could find them in their stocked warehouse. Sadness – I had no idea, but I really missed our babies.
Next Saturday and Sunday is installation weekend. I feel like Christmas is coming – you know that whole “I’m too excited to sleep” feeling? Santa, please bring me good weather, good luck, and enough balance so I don’t fall off the bridge.
