Punk Island was this past weekend on Governors Island and we had a blast! Dan came out to help me, so we both had the opportunity to knit, and to go watch some of the bands. As you can see from the photo above, it is best to knit with protective gear during punk weekend!
Governors Island hosts Punk Island every summer, and the best part of the place is that loud bands and picnic-goers can co-exist very peacefully in the park. Where else can you see a punk band perform in front of a beautiful Di Suvero sculpture?! The weather was gorgeous, and we had a lot of people stop by to knit, pay us compliments or just relax in the shade.
We are well on our way to have a fifth tree done at the end of June, thanks to all the knitters out there! Thank you Noelle for making a lovely crochet flower that I will attach to the first tree when the new panels go up. And thank you Dan for being fantastic support staff over the weekend!
