On December 13th Robyn Love the world renowned fiber artist, is going to cover a 10,000 gallon water tank on the roof of a building in Manhattan with a hand crocheted cozy made entirely on Lion Brand yarn. The completed project will stand 16 feet tall, have a 41 foot circumference and will have the shape and color of a giant pencil tip.

The giant crocheted cozy took seven people 3 weeks, using just over 32 miles of Lion Brand's Wool-Ease (R) Thick & Quick yarn to complete the mammoth project. Ms. Love known for her giant yarn projects. Earlier in 2008 she installed a hand crocheted, mile long, yellow line down the center of a road in Dallas Texas, which was also made with Lion Brand Yarn.

The massive amount of yarn used for the water tower cozy was supplied by the Lion Brand Yarn company. Ms Love was assisted on this project by the crochet skills of Rosemarie Krist, Willena Nanton, Jill Schreier, Sam Shubitz, Leslie S. and Barbara Van Elsen. The project was commissioned to promote "The Pencil Award", given out by a London-based charity D&AD.

"We are thrilled that Robyn has once again turned to Lion Brand Yarn for one of her major textile projects." said David Blumenthal CEO of Lion Brand Yarn. "It's even more gratifying to us that this project will bring attention to an educational charity like D&AD."

The giant cozy will be installed on a water tower on the roof of the building at 395 Broadway (at Walker St.) in Manhattan on Saturday December 13th and should be visible from the street at that location.
