It has been said that this is a waste of time and yarn. I would disagree wholeheartedly. I crochet enough for charity - toques, scarves, pneumonia vests. I wanted to do something that would make people stop and wonder about my sanity. I know some would disagree with our tags - that this doesn't make the world a more beautiful place. Well, fooey on them! (fooey is a place in China, anyhow!)
That's me, sewing on a fun chevron-style light stand-sweater! This is actually my favourite of all the pieces - its very fuzzy!
This bus stop sign post looked cold. Jill looks cheeky (as usual?)... or maybe she's making that face because its freezing outside. (It snowed earlier!)
I had a whole explaination ready for the cops. (I thought it would be handy to have something ready in my mind in case one came upon us like they did last night). I was going to apologize, explain the purpose of Yarn Bombing (without using the "Bomb" word) and then beg their indulgence while we put them up, took pictures and then took them down. No such explaination was needed!
So there you have it folks. It was a great evening... full of shinanigans. If any of you are interested in crocheting/knitting squares and rectangles for this project, just let me know! If you don't knit or crochet and still want to take part that's great! The more people we have on hand to sew, the quicker it can get done and the quicker we can get outta there! Give me a week to recouperate but I'm already itching to get out there and do it again. And if nothing else, have a walk down Wellington and tell me what you think!
Hope you enjoyed yourself.
Talk to you soon!
