So I got an interesting email yesterday:
Subject: WHATEVER IT TAKES: Steelers Fan Collections, Rituals, and Obsessions
Date: 10th June, 2010
We're putting together an exhibition celebrating Steelers fan art, homemade creations, and collections. We really enjoyed your Baby Steelers Jacket, where we found, http://www.flickr.com/photos/molliiieee/4441505751/.
Is this jacket available for inclusion in the exhibition this fall (late August 2010 through January 2011) at the Miller Gallery at Carnegie Mellon University? If so, we can discuss shipment and crediting details.
Looking forward to hearing back from you.

Whatever It Takes: Steelers Fan Collections, Rituals, and Obsessions
WHATEVER IT TAKES: Steelers Fan Collections, Rituals, and Obsessions is an exhibition of creations made by fans of the Pittsburgh Steelers, showcasing the extraordinary passion and anything-goes creativity that surrounds the team (such as homemade merchandise, lawn sculptures, basement collections, tattoos, pre-game superstitions, tailgating rituals, international Steelers bars, etc.). The exhibition will be on view at the Miller Gallery at Carnegie Mellon University this Fall 2010.

Um, oh my god!!!! They want my knitting in a museum!!!! I'm so excited!!!
I have to get the sweater back from Kay and baby Xavier (who is SO CUTE) for a few months. She said it's fine, since the sweater is too big for him now anyway.
Updates to come.
