This post is closed for comments, but you can still sign up to knit dishcloths. Please do so by emailing me at dumbmail AT larissabrown DOT net.
I know how you all love to knit.
I’m looking for volunteers to help me with an art piece for an exhibition this May.
If you are rather new to this blog, you may not know that I regularly rope my readers into
hard labor opportunities such as this. In the past my readers have helped me with an installation that brought together knitted hats from all over the world and was shown in Portland, Oregon, and Cleveland, Ohio. And with a fantastic sock yarn afghan. And with raising money to sponsor three women in the Congo, and more.
I’m now asking for volunteers who want to knit dishcloths.
To participate, I'm asking that you knit at least one dishcloth, 6” square, out of “natural” or cream color cotton* and donate it by sending it to me by March 20th. Any stitch pattern, as long as it is square, 6”. I’m asking for each knitter to also send your name, location (city, state or province, country), and email and blog addresses if applicable.
The dishcloths will be catalogued and tagged by me, and displayed together (not sure yet exactly how they will be laid out or stacked).
If you’d like to see some examples of my art, you can see larissabrown.net.If you’d like to participate, please let me know somehow. Here, on ravelry, or at dumbmail AT larissabrown DOT net. I will then send you my mailing address.
This is a volunteer job, and in thanks I’ll be giving away some prizes: yarn, books, patterns. I’ll draw winners from all those who get me their squares by March 20th. I’ll be tracking the project here and on ravelry too.
Thank you. (We're learning to say that around here. "Thank you! Just like Monte!" He's from Stuart Little.)
And please spread the word.
* The cotton should be Lion Kitchen Cotton, Sugar & Cream, Peaches & Cream, or a lookalike of those three, such as one of the organic cottons. A coarse natural colored yarn.
