Project updates!

Hello Fellow Knitters:

First and formost I want to thank you for being apart of this project! It could not have happened with out you. I am so happy to be apart of a community such as this. I am looking forward to seeing you again! We still have more places to see and more people to teach to knit. So here's an update on the Community Cast-on Project:

The piece is now 2 feet long. Our goal is to reach at least 5 feet before the bind-off ceremony at the DIA on Saturday September 17. We started at the Detroit TasteFest with the cast on at the Knit Fest in the park. We had a great group of people who started and continued to work on this for those first few days. It has also traveled to Clair Michigan to the Apple Tree Lane craft fair per Karen Kendrick-Hands, owner of City Knits, "The best place for yarn in Detroit" We need you to join us to knit on the following dates to reach and exceed our goal of 5 feet:
