Jay Hudson - Knit a Year

1. Please tell us about the work you will be showing in the 2010 E17 Art Trail?
I will be casting on 15 stitches of yarn & then knitting a minimum of 2 rows every day for a year.Each day i will choose a piece of yarn that draws me & knit.

Alongside this i will be keeping a journal with a piece of the yarn & some thoughts for each day & posting on a blog to record progress.All of the yarn used will be upcycled,recycled, charity shop, found or gifted to me.The final piece of knitting will become a hanging with a strand on the back to represent each of the 365 days .

I will be casting on this project at the E17 Art Trail based in Walthamstow, London at the start of this years Art Trail & casting off at the start of next years Art Trail.

I wonder what journeys the year & the yarn will take ……..
