Part 1: The Knitting

It was a delight to present Let’s Take a Walk…I need you as  part of the 8th annual Art in Odd Places festival. My deepest thanks to the performers, the photographers and the passer by I have now the challenging task of selecting and editing photos, videos and wonderful stories.
Here is a little preview of what happened 
For 5 days I walked along 14 Street inviting passer by to knit. Walking, knitting exchanging stories, unraveling…
