2020 - ongoing
The blanket is an ongoing process and performance of knitting the common and iconic white plastic bag with red "Thank you" lettering.
I started knitting in March 2020 when plastic bags were banned in New York State. The plastic bags I knit are the ones I have hoarded at my local supermarket.
Through this performance, I question if banning plastic bags means we will actually stop using them? And I wonder if I stop knitting them, how long will the knitted object be when it's finally finished?
