Cast offs was a site-specific installation of hand knitting on the grounds of the Inverness County Centre for the Arts (ICCA) for the exhibition Interlacing Conversations, August 30 to September 20, 2015 in Inverness, Nova Scotia.
The installation was composed of more than fifty hand-knit, flat wool ”drawings” of hats, socks, long underwear and mittens. Knitters in Cape Breton and Alberta have lent their hands and ingenuity to the creation of individual pieces based on a set of knitting patterns created for the project.
