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.

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.

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.

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.
