Last week was an adventure: the Knitta team installed our largest scale project yet! We covered over 300 feet of AC ductwork in Etsy.com‘s Brooklyn office space. It took 20 (wo)man days and countless skeins of yarn. (There’s a contest raging on our facebook page to guess how many… get in on the action to win an iphone cover.) Jakob, one of Etsy’s general office handymen and expert driver of scissor lifts, said that before the installation the ductwork looked […]

We’re ready to hit the road with the MINI. On our way out, we’re going to tag a few places around Austin and then have a picnic with some friends, where we’re gonna pig out on Franklin BBQ (YUMM). Nothing like an entire weekend to wander in Texas spring… More photos after the jump.

With that project being so short-lived, we figured this would be a […]
We feel honored to be featured in the first issue of Eigenwerk, an online craft blog/magazine based out of Germany. It features all kinds of craft, knit designs, artists and generally quite hip stuff in the world of contemporary DIY/design. It’s totally worth checking out – even if you don’t speak German!! Flip through the entire issue online then tell Christian & team how cool it is at the magazine’s official facebook page. (P.S. Welcome to spring, northern hemisphere readers!)
There has been much clamoring for an extension, and we finally got the okay from UT’s Keeper of the Trees. We are so pleased to announce that Knitted Wonderland will stay up at the Blanton for another week, until March 25th. After you check out the photos below, click around these links to see the blog posts and flickr sites of all the hardworking volunteers. (I’m sure I’ve left some out, so if we’ve missed your link, please post to comments […]
Hold your horses. This is just the bumper (aka teaser trailer) for the Knitta documentary (!!) showing before 20 percent of all SXSW Film Fest screenings.

And send her love on twitter too – […]
