Saturday was the Wake Up The Earth festival (a springtime festival and parade in JP celebrating the success of JP activists in blocking a proposed route 95 expansion through the neighborhood in 1979), and the culmination of the marriage equality banner project. In the end I lost count of how many squares/rectangles I knit, and I also forgot to bring my camera, which was okay because I spent the entire afternoon knitting and sewing together squares anyway. So here is a picture of the finished banner courtesy of the Yahn Bomb Squad:
And there are plenty more of the work in progress at the JP Knit & Stitch site. As you can see, we finished, and it looks pretty great. There was so much awesome organization and work and support from JP Knit & Stitch, the JP Stitch & Bitch group, and the whole local crafting community, it was really inspiring.
