It’s time for a crochet-along with Marly Bird! After a general inquiry in the CAL group for what you want to learn how to make, it has been decided that we’ll be crocheting the Granny Square Cardigan designed by Marly, herself.

The North Carolina Project:
Red Heart and the Office of Raleigh Arts have teamed up to host Olek, our friend and New York-based artist, as she begins the North Carolina leg of her 50-state public art project, Love Across the USA. Olek, who is widely known for “yarn-bombing” sites, will work with participants to create a portrait of an important North Carolina woman. The completed work will be approximately 40’ wide and over 20’ high, and will debut on the eastern facade of the Raleigh Convention Center in October 2017.
