Inspired by the shapes on the St. Johns Bridge, the “Connections Cowl” is all about the ways we are physically and emotionally connected to each other. The St. Johns bridge provides a physical connection, a lifeline, to the rest of Portland. Weird Sisters yarn shop, situated at the north end of the bridge, has created valuable civic connections to St. Johns and fostered many personal connections within the fiber community. These connections keep us grounded and support us through the hard times. And for that we are grateful!
