Knit the Brooks

To celebrate the opening of the newest exhibition at the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art, the Memphis Knit Mafia put a call-out to all knitters and crocheters to put together an eclectic stash of crocheted and knitted pieces to yarn-bomb the Brooks Museum. 

The exhibition is called Angels and Tomboys: Girlhood in 19th-Century American Art and will go until May 12th. 

People started meeting up at 11:00 this morning to either drop off their pieces or help put everything together. 


Our fearless leader demonstrating how to zip-tie the pieces to wherever it needed to go. 


And here we go!

Is that a neat piece?? I wish I had thought to take a picture of it when it was still laid out. It had daisies all over it and that little ladybug is too stinkin' cute!

Love the rainbow!

Knitted with love!

I had to leave after about an hour and a half so I'm not sure what it looks like now except I just know it's a beautiful and colorful-looking display. I don't know how long it's going to stay up so if you're in that neck of the woods, go by and take a peek! And go inside to see the Brooks Museum exhibit!
