WOW! for the wildly colourful Woolly Walkalong

Go and see the amazing knitting and crocheting yarn bomb at the Devonport Wharf, Auckland, New Zealand.

Of course for me, and most of the rest of the world, we will have to be do our looking through pictures posted here:
The Woolly Walk Along is now installed at
the Devonport Wharf, Auckland, New Zealand.

I can just see the edge of my knitted piece in a couple of pictures. Its fun to have ‘visiual’ proof that my contribution made it all the way from Calgary! This is what I sent. See if you can find it on the handrail in Auckland.

Check Mark for International Yarn Bombing Day

Here is the first of my yarn bombings today/tonight.  Sort of a  pre-international yarn bombing day, graffiti tag, Calgary, Canada.

This  check mark is on a chain link fence around Brentwood Elementary School.    I thought the  school kids could use another check mark for their end of year exams.

A woolly check mark for the school yard.

I tied it onto the fence as  quickly as  I could.   Northmount Drive was busy, and lots of cars  drove by.  One slowed down so the passenger could  shout out a cheer.  ( I think it was a cheer,  I hope it was a cheer…  if not,, oh well)     With luck this bit will last a  while and the kids will find it amusing.

I have  a couple more pieces to install tomorrow.

Calgary Olympic Plaza, yarn bombed.

By the time I left there were more than half a dozen knitters/crocheters involved… and I left before the end of the event… who knows, there could have been a MOB of Knit Bombers by 4 pm … I will have to find out the specific details…

Preview Pics

This is a sneak preview of the yarn bombs I will be releasing tomorrow. They won’t be the only ones though, a group of knitters and crocheters will be at Olympic Plaza tomorrow morning, with yarn, hooks and needles in action. It is going to be fun to see what everyone else brings, and how the pieces all fit together.
These pics are taken on front step of my house,.. I am sure they will look much better tomorrow.

Now to pack everything up and get ready to (YARN)BOMB.

Finally, a sunny day for yarn bombing

I had these two little yarn bombs in my bag of goodies for weeks. Finally, today was the day they were released. The purple and yellow one looks ‘Easterly’ to me, and the green one, knit by my daughter, is so ‘Springy’. I sewed them on to the fence at the church and the bus bench today at noon. We are getting braver, releasing our soft graffiti in broad daylight! Have a look and see for yourself.

Easter Egg Yarn Bomb

We also had a look around and saw all the knit bombs we placed in February are still in place. They are starting to get saggy, but, I guess that is understandable, they have been snowed on over and over in the last couple of months. I wonder how long they will last?

The flowers on the vine are still wrapped around the iron railing in front of the church. I hope it makes someone smile when they see it.

Now, back to the needles. Green yarn everywhere. Stay tuned for something GREEN. Really, really green.

Yarn Bomb in Calgary

I just had to share this site! (and I am quickly heading out the door to go see them in person)

Congrats to the Calgary ArtBomber, the yarnbomb caps look great.

We have been waiting for the snow to stop so the caps could be put out… but, really, they are warm little hats, I think they would have been fine with the snow.. LOL… of course, this is Calgary, so it might still snow again. uggg.

Calgary Traffic Barrier Yarn Bomb

I made a few of those caps, and it is so cool to see the variety of the submissions. So much creativity! I wonder what kind of reactions they are getting on the street.

… here’s a pic to get you excited:

and we were laughing as we wrapped this little vine around the rusty old iron fence in front of the church.

There has been snow off and on all weekend, so we thought a bit of spring knitting was in order. We warmed up with a Tim Hortons coffee after wrapped the vine on the railing.
