Memorial Pole On Derby

25 Oct

Sabrina K. wrote us and asked us if we could please bring some color to this pole on the corner of Derby and Warring. It has been used for a memorial for a 5 year old boy. We have had some other requests for poles that I had shuffled around and not gotten to, but I immediately wanted to do this one. I had knitted a simple piece with lots of color which I thought would be supportive and warm. It had stopped raining and the light was low and golden and clear as we have here in the Bay Area in the fall. The pole had jars of old water and dried flowers and silk flowers in a wreath on the top. It was very relaxing to have cars rhythmically stopping at the stop sign and some people rolled down their windows and encouraged us. I think the knitting looks comforting on the pole and encouraging of life.
