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.

Fingerless Dragon Mitts for Yarn Bombing

These will be perfect for chilly early morning yarn bombings, or just anytime I want some yarn bombing style.

Knitting these cute dragon mitts took a couple of evenings and was a nice break from socks. ;)

U of C yarn bombed!

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

I love it!

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.

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?

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
