Hi - I've been so swamped in work for several months that knitting had really fallen by the wayside. Now I'm deciding which laid-aside project to finish first.
In an attempt to delay that decision, I knit some acrylic swatches for our local yarn-bombing group. This Saturday we're going to do a tree in Taksim Park, a rare pocket of green space in the very cement-bound center of Istanbul. It's been the object of developer greed for years but laws prevented them from touching it. Now they've found a loophole (to rebuild a building that was torn down in the 1940s in the name of historic "preservation," but it will really be just a big shopping center). The fact that the developing companies have ties with the prime minister have a lot to do with it of course.
The Turkish on the blue and black piece is `AĞAÇ = HAYAT`, or "Trees = Life."
Now it's back to the three socks asking to be finished!
