I have only seen public art in online photos and magazines. I have never come across amy myself. It's one of those things that I kinda get but not quite. There was so much going on during the Bend Summer Festival that I walked right by this.
I would have completely missed this in the hoopla but Missy saw it ans called me back. It's pretty amazing. Do they knit the strips and then stitch them to the tree? It's awesome. Once we stopped, others did too.
This is also knitting in public, if you call a waiting room public. Ian had heat exhaustion four years ago and ended up in urgent care. He tangled with it again four weeks ago while cutting firewood in the Sierras. He wasn't better, so I took him in to the doc two weeks ago and now again yesterday. Lots of tests, lots of knitting. Mixed diagnosis, but hypertension was once of them and already he's responded to that medication. Huge sigh. The knitting is fine. Meanwhile on the ranch,
The temps were starting to push 100 and were miserable, then the clouds started to roll in. This was a big surprise since thunderstorms weren't in the forecast. I consulted my in-house weather forecaster. Nope, he said. No electrical activity.
