This is the last knit of my decade long project Close Knit. The idea developed early in 2009, the first knit photographed on the 21st August 2009 and the final on the 7th January 2020.
Determined to finish the project in 2019 I stayed in on New Years eve, knitting then sewing up the work, making the final stitch at 11.59pm. I'd intended to finish & photograph the knit in situ in December but train fares were high, so the next best thing was a booking in early January.
The journeys taken are part of the work, logistics, planning and physical travel to the burial sites - a small ritual. I wonder at the others travellers around me, what unseen rituals or pilgrimages are they participating in?
