There has been much clamoring for an extension, and we finally got the okay from UT’s Keeper of the Trees. We are so pleased to announce that Knitted Wonderland will stay up at the Blanton for another week, until March 25th.

After you check out the photos below, click around these links to see the blog posts and flickr sites of all the hardworking volunteers. (I’m sure I’ve left some out, so if we’ve missed your link, please post to comments below! It will be added.)

  1. This was so much fun and I was so excited to be involved. When I was taking my knitting down today, three different people came up to me to say how much they enjoyed seeing the trees every day and to thank me for my involvement.

    • Hi Melissa, thanks for your concern. For this project, we consulted closely with UT’s head arborist to ensure that we didn’t damage the trees. The installation was up for only 3 weeks (taken down last Friday) during a time of year when the trees weren’t growing anyway. We certainly would never put up a project that would harm nature. Again, we appreciate your concern, and thanks for following Knitta Please.
