The Knitted Bridge in Cambridge, ONT

Knitting must be a Canadian pastime right up there with hockey. Knitters have decorated Cambridge, Ontario's Main Street Bridge with scarves, mittens and hats. It looks fantastic! Way to go awesome knitters!

Read more about it on The Record.




From The Record:

About 16,000 plastic zip ties hold thousands of knitted afghans, scarves, socks, hats and blankets to the cold concrete of the bridge. Some of the pieces arrived from as far away as Australia and New Zealand.

Volunteers helped Sturdy sew together all the knitted scarves to wrap around the arches, totalling nearly 830 metres. Between Tuesday and Friday, about 30 volunteers helped Sue attach the pieces to the bridge.

Blogging about knitting since 2004.


What's going on now?

To sum up: husband has a job after two layoffs in 2013. Husband has been laid off for the fourth time in two years due to companies cancelling projects. I have two kids under the age of 5, we just moved in with my mother in law and I think I'm starting to get my mojo back. I've had writer's block for weeks.
