The Milkweed Project

Hi everyone!

While over on Ravelry.com I happened to read about a very fun and exciting art project. The Milkweed Project is an art project headed up by Shan B. Her goal is to have a large collaborative interpretation of a milkweed pod, or more specifically, the inside of a milkweed pod.

Shan has asked for contributions of fiber, knit, crochet, spun in white tones. She will then install all of the pieces in a gallery and create a milkweed pod that people can walk through and experience.

Shan is still open to contributors so check out her blog and see for yourself! You don't need to be a Ravelry member to join, but if you are you can join The Pod group. I think this will be very exciting and fun. Just knowing I have a crochet sample in an art project is going to be exciting. I love collaborative art, and to participate...well, that just sound like fun!

have a good evening!


  1. Hi Puglette, this is so great reading about all these things that can entertain our mommies and daddys. My mommie takes some interesting looking pictures of weeks and stuff with her camera. These milk weeds are beautiful. Do they have chocolate milk weed?

  2. What a fun project! I can't wait to see what you come up with! This sounds like something Melissa might be interested in too...

    Have a great day!

  4. Hi Puglette
    I finally took the time,,,, to browse through the milk weed project readings. I felt as though I was on a relaxing journey- each site connected to another beautiful site- the paintings, the crafting, the words. I wish I had time to do stuff like that- but I would need to be talented. Oh those paintings!
