Glacier Time Scarf

I actually finished my Glacier Time scarf that is a visual representation of my time spent during my artist-in-residency at Glacier National Park! (I finished it right after I got home but am just now getting it photographed). 

I mentioned before that I wanted to savor all the time spent at the Park in June 2023. This meant consciously looking, observing and being present for what I was seeing and doing. The result is a unique work of wearable art that has meaning to me. The other pictures show a few close-ups and a better view of the legend to read the scarf; which is read from right to left (the way knitting is worked), with my first day being the bottom ridge and my last day the top ridge. If you look closely you can see the little yellow bit in the middle of the night where I woke to a mouse being snapped in a trap and I had to deal with it at 2:30 in the morning. 

But you can also see a lot of wildlife that I saw and various activities I did during the month. The cool thing about the scarf is the overall patterns that emerge. I really tried to have good sleep hygiene and you can tell with the big block of blue on the right side. And that I usually ended my days with a lot of knitting and a bit of reading.
