Pink haired and heavy-metal lovin’ Zach, was an 11 year-old 6th grader last year in Bre Pettis’ art class. At the end of every year, Bre gives his students a chance to work on an independent project.
Zach already knew how to knit and brought in some string to knit with and he needed some knitting needles to being his project, Bre recalls.
I remember him saying something like ‘I could have used pencils, but this is cooler’. Zach ended up with a cool looking wristband, originally intended to be a scarf.
