Massive wrapping

This lovely cat was made by one of the artists at Creative Growth, a local art center where disabled people make art (it was unsigned). I bought it at one of their Holiday Sales. At a similar center in England, plans are afoot at this disordered life to wrap 26 poles with knitted or textile pieces by anyone who cares to participate, the idea being inspired by grrl+dog's wrapping of streetlights with knitted creations on the streets of Sydney.

If you'd like to participate, visit this disordered life to find out details and address in England. Remember if posting from the U.S.: 9x 12 priority mail envelopes can be used to send up to 4 lbs worth of anything you can jam into them for $11.95: If you're sending under 12 oz., use an envelope NOT a box to send in (big difference in price).

I admire these fearless, expressive works of art. Excuse me...must go get busy with the yarn for an "inside job". Thanks for the postage tips.

Arent they powerful pieces? These guys can make art, and are so free of the inner critic. There will be a pole wrap coming from Sydney to Ms. Disordered.
