Recently, friends (all of us in some way affiliated with Pratt) helped Lise pack the truck for her move back to Boston, and this material was one of the only things left behind at the end. All it needed was some shaping and a knot.
Interestingly, no one in the group was native to Seattle. We were from Michigan, Wisconsin, Ohio, Boston, Connecticut, Florida/Georgia/Hawaii, and Canada. I love that about cities–this mix of “otherness.”
