“10,000 shadows” is a new crowd knitting project, together we are going to knit 10,000 shadow/globes or balls, like I did it in “Knit a shadow – in concrete”.
This time we will use our leftover cotton yarn 8/4, all colors, but only solid colors.

Together we’ll knit 10.000 small ‘socks’/‘spheres’. The deadline has been extended and we’ll continue knitting until we reach the goal of 10,000. Then I’ll transform all the knitted socks  into a magnificent art exhibition.

I’m working on where to exhibit this magnificent knitting installation, if you have any suggestions, please let me know.

I hope that knitters all over the world are going to join 10.000 shadows. Knit alone, or knit together.

Do you like to join? Just go ahead.

And SEE how to knit a shadow here.


YES, I’m working to find out where.
