All the wool my mother never knitted - Making Time

Lancaster, England

March 2011

The journey had come to an end, and so to tell its story and have witnesses to the final 'casting off' of the last stitch and finish the knitted 'time-line', I was invited to attend the 'Making Time Symposium'. During a slide show of the knitting in all its locations, I laid out the knitting on the floor of the theatre referring to each corresponding part of the journey as I did so. I then invited the audience to dialogue with me about whether to 'cast off' or not. The reactions varied from encouragement to end it to pleads not to – 'but it's your life!'
Finally I cut the wool.
