tree cosies, you say?
This year at Ottawa's Winterlude Festival my as of yet unnamed Stitch & Bitch and I have hand knitted and crocheted cosies to warm a tree in Confederation Park as a part of the Urban Cosy Project! Our excitement cannot be underestimated at the thought that we're showing typically domestic work in a public space - let alone that we made something for the first time as a Collective. The idea is to take a non-destructive form of graffiti - ever hear of Yarn Bombing? - and use it as a collaborative method for making installation sculpture... or something along those lines...Below are picture of our group cosy, as well as other, lesser cosies.
