- Watertower cozy by artist Robyn Love. This was a project by Robyn Love publicizing the D&AD Pencil Awards. She couldn’t crochet it all herself, so I was one of the 6 “crochet masters” who worked on it with her.Willena Nanton and I dismantled it at the 2009 Knit Out, Crochet Too, held at the Mall of America.
