More than 1,800 knitters and crocheters pulled together to make nearly 600 blankets to help cover the Andy Warhol Bridge in Pittsburgh, PA over the weekend of August 10-11. Hundreds of hours of work went into this record-breaking project spanning the Allegheny River at 7th Street. For more info: KnitTheBridge.wordpress.com.

These blankets will all be laundered at the end of the project and then depending on their condition, donated to homeless shelters, nursing homes and animal shelters.
