The Knitted Maze Pictures

I am reposting from Knit A Year’s blog. She got up early, travelled for several hours on a train and then a bus to go to Saffron Walden to see the Knitted Maze in person. Check out the details on her blog. I am not sure which bit is her knitting, but I can see in this picture mine, so we have visual proof that the package arrived in time! (Yay UPS).

I also have to send a huge thank you to Sophie, who arranged the whole Knitted Maze… what a lot of work that must have been… and a lot of knitting too!

Here is a quick picture:

The Sheepdogs

This isn’t the kind of sheepdogs you would expect to read about on a knitting blog. Even an ‘alternative, yarn bombing, knit graffiti’ knitting blog. These are The Sheepdogs, a Canadian band from my hometown of Saskatoon, and they need your votes. (Plus, besides having a cool band name, they have a great sound)

The Sheepdogs

Vote for The Sheepdogs, if they win, they will be on the Cover of the The RollingStone.

I’ve been knitting on another pair of seemingly endless stripey wool socks. Music seems to help speed things along, or, maybe just distract me from getting out the measuring tape AGAIN.

Knit On, Rock On

Yarn Bombing Documentary

Just  spreading the word about an ongoing project,  and  reposting an entry from a very cool blog. You can find all the details on Sarah’s site, even contribute to the cause.   Who knows,  maybe I will have some video to upload to the project as well!:

Give us your International Yarn Bombing Day footage!

Hi! Sarah here, director of the feature length Yarn Graffiti Documentary.

 As many of you know, This Saturday, June 11, is International Yarn Bombing Day (Woo Hoo!). All around the world, hundreds of crews will simultaneously carry out knitted and crocheted projects. I’m so excited, as a knitter and as a filmmaker.
My crew will be in San Antonio, TX filming a group as they knit a giant Texas flag over the River Walk. While we’re really excited about this my producer, John Moore, and I have been trying to figure out how we can best utilize our resources to capture this awesome event.WE WANT YOUR IYBD FOOTAGE!
My crew and I can only be in one place at a time, but we want to gather as much footage as possible for an elaborate montage of bombers around the world. If you plan on taking part of any project and plan to have video, pictures, or any other documentation, please send it to us. Use your IPhone, old Handicam, Flipcam, 16mm, MiniDV, or whatever. We know that most of you are not professional filmmakers or camera-people but that’s okay. We just want to make sure we get this world wide event captured! This is an imperative part of the film because it will show the international community of yarn bombers.
