This pole is part of the ongoing project to completely cover Colusa circle in knitting. I wanted to knit something a little more manly; no ruffles, the pub seeming to be a guy place. I’m always trying to make the pieces more graphic. The charming English manager came out of the pub, I got a little nervous, He looked at me and said ” What does this mean?”
I was sort of stumped by that. “Well, I want to cover all the poles here with this knitting and have the entire circle be one piece of art. And I think about each of the business’s and try and make a piece that comments on that business. I want people to come here to see it, like an art show. It started in England ” I added helpfully.
“OK” , he said thoughtfully. “I just wanted to know what it meant. People ask me’ People ask the pub manager what this means? I like that.
