And an installation at the Jerwood Gallery near the Tate Modern in London, of a collection of one of knitting's greatest unsung projects, the UFO.  Curator Rachel Matthews, explains on the Project blog:

UFO Project Administration Service was the answer to a proposal I was asked to give for the Jerwood Contemporary Makers 2009 Exhibition. The exhibition will run from 10th June -19th July at the Jerwood Space in London and will then tour.


You are invited to take part in helping us complete Planet Earth's UFOs.  All the UFOs are posted opposite. Some are 'WAITING' for YOU, and some have been 'TAKEN' by SOMEBODY!
Take chances, make choices, tell stories, imagine the possibilities, and connect to the bottom draw of other knitters across the globe. 

Please leave comments, and for more information or to book a UFO, e-mail This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  

Happy knitting and love,

The blog is worth reading through for all of the creativity, heartache, and peripateticisms we knitters share.  Not every object ends up where its knitter originally imagined, and that's half the fun. Start from the beginning, and you have a great summer read. However, if you have limited time and want to get back to the knitting, read this entry about a shawl that survived its creator.
