Sam is on his way to “Wool the World”

Sam Barsky, Baltimore, knits sweaters of places and then takes selfies standing in front of the places.

Some sweaters [‘jumpers’ in England] are of well-known places: Stonehenge, Tower Bridge, Golden Gate Bridge, Times Square, Manhattan skyline, Niagara Falls.

Other sweaters, more up our alley, are of less-well-known places: smaller waterfalls, pylons in fields, two-lane highways, pumpkins on front lawn.

This is a great example of safe excitement, excitement that’s suitable for us dull men.

Sam has knitted over 100 of these sweaters.
