Our Interpretation of Dr.Seuss’ Anniversary

We have two news: one good and one bad!

 

The good news: WE MADE IT!

After months and days of crochet, knit, and loom work by nearly 20 independent crocheters, we present THE THNEED! On February 6th, we had a lot of fun connecting our masterpiece together. And on February 21st we had fun trying it on.  As you can see it is completely versatile. There are no up or down sides and you can wrap it around you any way you want. It can be a head piece alone or a warm wrap during a cold movie night.

“A Thneed’s a Fine-Something-That-All-People-Need!

It’s a shirt. It’s a sock. it’s a glove. It’s a hat.

But it has other uses. Yes, far beyond that.

You can use if for carpets. For pillows! For Sheets!

Or curtains! Or covers for bicycle seats!”

(Dr.Seuss “Lorax”)

The bad news: Loussac Library didn’t accept our Thneed.

This is their final reply: “Thank you very much for your very generous offer of the Thneed to the Anchorage Public Library. I have checked with all of our locations and none of our branches feel that they can store it right now. And with the upcoming renovations at Loussac it is not a good time to add to our art collection. I hope that you can find a good home for it.”

I believe we can turn this into an opportunity.  We will have local schools borrow the Thneed during the Dr.Seuss’ Week. I am currently connecting with two local schools to offer to use the Thneed during the week of March 3-7. If you know of any schools or organizations interested either in using the Thneed during the month of March or taking it in permanently into a good home, please, let me know.
Looking forward to more fun pictures from schools and more fun projects!!!
