This week saw some good progress with the completion of pieces and installations. The audience response that’s been captured thus far is filled with surprise and lots of chuckling.

On Wednesday, Jean Barash and Jana Roice boldly stapled Bruce the Moose’s winter look onto his plywood frame. Next time you’re in Wilson, take a look, you won’t be able to miss him.

Instruction in yarn stitching

Lisa instructs several of our young knitters in the fine art of stitching with yarn

On Thursday, Chelcie, Lisa and Suzanne attended the last session at Colter Elementary School. Our now expert 4th grade knitters were excited to be adding embellishments to the leg warmers they’ve created for the Sports Authority Elk. The ensemble will be installed on Tuesday December 18th at 1pm. Come by if you can.

Kathy installs a scarf around a fish’s neck. Wait, do fish have necks?

Later on Thursday, Kathy Luksich installed a scarf on Isadora, the fish above the fish hatchery sign. The name was inspired by Isadora Duncan who loved scarves (and was done in by one too).
