I recently learned how to knit and just moved from NY to Melbourne Australia for an internship at a packaging lab. I'm a packaging science major at Rochester Institute of Technology, there are only a handful of schools that offer packaging science as a major and every other person that has worked in this particular packaging lab has been an Michigan State University alumni, so the whole lab is filled with green MSU junk.
The lab manager, Rob, also has taken great joy in picking on me for joining a Stitch and Bitch, "hows your old lady group" " how are the cat ladies" etc. So when I saw this challenge I thought I needed to find a way to plaster something in the lab with my school colors brown & orange.
So here is my Forklift cozy!
- not only does it bring great warmth and comfort to some heavy machinery
- it provided a huge canvas for orange and brown yarn at to show off my RIT spirit
- and I got to use my knitting skills to make a cozy for Rob's manly forklift
I can't wait to see his face on Monday
only three poles because the black thing heats up & I don't want to give Rob a safetly excuse for taking my cozy apart!
