From the yarnbomb hinterlands

1 04 2011

Hello loves,

I know it’s been a little while.  Okay, a long while.  I’ve been pretty busy these days… But to reward you for your patience, I have lot’s of news to tell you about.

First, I was super happy to catch the call to fibre artists from microRevolt to create armbands to commemorate the 146 victims of a textile factory fire in NYC in 1911.  On March 22, they held a march in Boston where volunteers wore the armbands.  It looks like it went off really well.  You can read the post here. And I think – I think you can see my 167 armband in one of the pictures of the march.  Check out the man in the blue jacket.  Looks like my 167 anyway.

Segundo… This Sunday I’ll be in Kelowna at the Community Theatre with my girl Stucer to see Aidan Knight, Said the Whale and We Are the City and I’m so FREAKING excited about it.  So I’ve got a little yarnbomb up my sleeve for that…  Not saying much on it yet though.  Stay tuned, kids.  Pics will be up early next week.

In other, totally unrelated news, I may have to start a new blog.  Don’t worry – not to replace this one… just to have a place for a different topic.  Knitting for babies.  Yes, that’s right.  If the grapevine is particularly thick where you are and the news hasn’t come through yet, I have a bun in the oven.  Well, I guess that’s not totally unrelated news – actually, Swimmy’s the reason I haven’t been doing much yarnbombing these days.  I’ve been knitting baby stuff instead.  So, yea, there might be a new blog on that.  I’ll keep you posted (in my fashion).

So, short post today, but more coming soon.

knitified* out.

ps- one more thing…  Polson Park is getting torn up around a few of my old  yarnbombs, so once the construction is all done, I’ll have to replace them.  So far they’ve taken out a tree and a banister with my work on them…





Quick update before GLEE starts!!!

19 05 2010

Okay this has to be fast.  Glee starts in 10.  Here’s an old one from two weeks ago (it’s gone now) and the new one from 25 minutes ago.  Some creepy dude did this driveby watching thing followed by a driveby watching thing in the other direction.  Weirdo! Maybe he’s a bylaw guy. Hope not.  A LOT of my knitifications have been taken down lately.  The flowers on Main, the parking meter cozy, this red one… Lots.  So I think I’m gonna lay off the outdoors ones for a bit so i can do some indoor ones.  I have some great ideas.  And also, I think I might be in Kamloops soon, so I’ll knitify that fair city by the river.

Okay, gotta run, Glee’s starting, and then I gotta watch Things We Lost in the Fire with Benecio del Toro.  Because anyone who knows me knows it’s all about the Benecio. That man is fucking HOT. I know it’s weird.  I can’t explain it.  Nom nom nom.

Word to ya mutha.





Stolen Nut-Warmers on PV Rd

16 10 2009
Okay.  So the RED nut warmers on PV road have been stripped.  As my good buddy asked, “Is nothing sacred?!?”  This is her theory of what went down, rendered in MSPaint, I believe.  You’ll also notice that the Ninja responsible for removing the nut-cozies is much more stealthy than we were when we put them on the nuts in the first place.
I’m feeling a bit sentimental because this is the first knitification that has been removed.
 >misty eyed<
Note to self: Knitifications on PV only last a day or two.
