I'm on my way to Laumeier Sculpture Park in Sunset Hills, MO to drop off some yarn. What's this, you say? Yarn? At the Sculpture Park? Yep. Yarn at the sculpture park.
Laumeier is currently exhibiting Mark Newport's Self Made Man. Newport does the knitted superhero costumes that are often mentioned in knitting publications.
The curator and I got to talking about yarn and community in general when he suggested that the gift shop might want to carry some of my yarn for the duration of the exhibit. Wow! Yes, of course! I am so flattered! The shop manager and I put our heads together and now the Laumeier gift shop will be carrying a small selection of my yarn for the duration of the Mark Newport exhibit. I'm excited!
The exhibit is open during the park's normal hours, but there will be a special Knit-In with the artist on April 3 at 2pm in the park. I will definitely be there with my knitting group. I am certain other knitting groups are planning on going. I hope you come, too. Knitter's represent! It should be a beautiful day!
