oh, wow. I can't believe I found this KAL. My entire senior project revolves around re-knitting old sweaters. I could keep this KAL going all year just by myself.
I can explain. I'm a sculpture major at an art school, and required to do a massive senior project to graduate. Mine has developed into a large knit maze out of old sweaters. There is a lot of deeper meaning behind it, but mainly it's about texture, visual aestethics and memory. I'm creating a hedgemaze, but with huge panels of knit as the walls. I'm using size 50 needles to do this (absurdly large, but make it go very fast), plus I love the idea of being able to see through the walls of a maze. The majority of it is old sweaters that I have frogged, but I am mixing in some new yarn occasionally. I must thank my grandmother, who has been doing tons of knitting for me.
I did a test run of it two weeks ago, in a small installation room (18x20ft). That's what all of the pictures are from. Next November I plan on using a HUGE room, so I'll be doing lots of knitting until then.
