International Yarn Bombing Day Activities   4 comments

So here it is, 2:00 p.m. and I’ve been a busy girl, here and there:

Bay & Grove, El Verano, CA

That was about 7:30 this morning.  Then I was on to the Plaza, where a group of knitters was reportedly gathering to do an installation.  I didn’t see them, or their work, but I did put this up:

Then it was off to Cotati to see my sweetie and put this one up:

This was one of those rare occasions when a few people actually spoke to me.  I overheard a little girl asking her mother what I was doing, so I talked with them for a couple minutes.  They liked the concept.  Then there was some guy who complimented my work, which was gratifying!  After I got in my car I saw someone walk up to the bike rack and examine it for a minute or so, then she walked back into the coffee shop, thinking who-knows-what.  Cotati’s unofficial slogan is “Keep Cotati Weird,” so this sort of thing tends not to faze people much.

Then it was back to Sonoma to rendezvous with my dear friend Tillie, owner of Sonoma Yarn, for whom I’ve been preparing a tree sweater.  It’s not done, but we got the first three parts installed today:

Sonoma Yarn: Tillie's Tree

And that’s it for me, for now, anyway.  I’ve had a blast looking at everyone else’s wonderful creations, and you should too:  http://www.flickr.com/groups/1703346@N21/

  1. Great work today! We’re visiting from San Jose and admired your needling. I love the Poppies in the Plaza. El Camino Real and its bells are kinda my thing and this is the first time I’ve seen an ECR bell get bombed. Perfect. A challenge for you…next time do the bell itself! (Bring a ladder!)

  2. Nice work! Love the bike rack & tree, especially.

  4. Found my way over from Regretsy, and I’m happy to be here. I LOVE the tree sweater- it’s just beautiful! I haven’t crocheted in a long time, and was never a good knitter, but this makes me was to make something to yarnbomb with. What a groovy idea.
