It is so cool that these knitted bombs have been re-released! Those green beauties I knit so long ago were first put up in Calgary, at Olympic Plaza, but, because it was not to be a permanent placement, the Calgary Artbomber carefully took them down, and kept them in the top secret yarn bomb stash, to be sprung on the unsuspecting public in opportune moments, when and where they should they arise.

Hearts Grow on Trees

Here are pictures of a few pretty turqouise hearts I am sending to Art Grows on Trees in the UK. I started out strong, knitting the butterfly ring, with great plans to make a few more butterflies, birds, and more….. something about plans in the summer… …. …. There is only one knitted butterfly. I hope he is not lonely. ;)

Luckily, early this spring, I felted a bunch of old wool sweaters that I found at thrift shops. One is a perfect shade of turquoise, and has been cut, sewn, and button charmed into some dangly little hearts. I may add a few more surprises to the package, before I mail it out…

These remind me of the heart shaped sugar cookies my mom makes. Of course, the cookies aren’t turquoise, well.. sometimes the icing is pretty colourful, depending on how many little fingers are involved with the food colouring!

Fantastic new photo blog by my ubertalented daughter.

I can’t even predict what you will see here, but I know it will have her really cool photos, as well as some of her favourite things from around the ‘interweb’

Maybe there will be some knitting pics.

My Slytherin House scarf was knit in 4 days, just in time to see the Midnight Opening of Harry Potters – The Deathly Hallows Part 2.

I suppose you could say I yarn bombed myself!

U of C yarn bombed!

More yarn graffiti in Calgary, thanks to The Happy Hookers! Pictures on the Calgary Artbombing website.

I am sure the students at the University of Calgary are loving them too.

I made this butterfly ring today, for fun, and for a weekly challenge at Ravelry. More about that later.
The pattern is here.

Too cute!

I have to do this.  You need to  enjoy this.

This is a picture from a cool blog called Can’t Survive on Yarn Alone

I love it.  I love the colour.  I love the message.  I love the blog.

Calgary Artbomber yarn bombs Halifax

The Calgary Artbomber strikes again, this time 3700 kms to the East, in Halifax. It looks like a very successful hit; I can see yarn bombs on a statue, a stop sign, a bench, a tree, posts, and even a rock. I can even see one of my pieces in Halifax Harbor. (yay)

There are twenty  cool yarn bomb pictures for you to enjoy,  but my favourite is this one:

Knit Graffiti in Halifax Harbor

This little green piece of knitting is chalking up an interesting graffiti experience. Originally, I knit it for the LiveStyle Urban Arts festival here in Calgary. It was, along with a few more woolly bits, sewed around a pole/cement base for awhile.

Even though I can’t travel to Halifax, my graffiti did.
Even though I can’t travel to New Zealand, my graffiti did ( as part of the Woolly Walkalong)
and
Even though I can’t travel to the UK, my graffiti is going to! (not quite finished yet, but soon on its way to the Knitted Maze. (with the help of Canada Post)

Does this  qualify as adventure travel?
