Plan to Knitify Kelowna

7 03 2010

Tomorrow night I’m going to kelowna to go see Hawksley Workman (oh dear!) with my girl B.  This little piece will shortly thereafter appear wrapped around some object.  And I think I’ll have a couple smaller pieces too, but I’ll make them tomorrow morning. I thought it might be fun to make small pieces backed with magnets, so that I could pitch them at tall metal objects (i.e.: light standards) way higher than I could reach and you’d need a ladder to get them down. Or a fireman.
Anyway, I can picture B and me pitching knitted magnets at telephone poles and the like. Should be fun. I’ll have to get some crazy glue first thing in the morning so they can be made, glued, and then dry in time for the fun.  I’ll take pictures.





Knitified, Bitch!

4 03 2010
Okay, so I will resolve for the month of March to be more vigilant in always knitting knitting knitting so as to have a ready stash of knitifications ready to knitify. I’d like to have a few in my bag ready to go at any time.

Here’s one for the meantime. After putting this up, for a job well done, the meemats lady and I tried to do a celebratory jumping hi5 but brutally failed. Didn’t quite end up with hands jammed in faces, but it was close. Laughed so hard I almost peed myself.

Fun times…

This is me showing off the tag.





Keeping Nuts Warm

29 01 2010

So, I had planned on getting these projects out for the Olympic Torch relay events, but there were security guards everywhere and I thought that even if I got them out there, they’d be gone so fast it wouldn’t be worth it.  So I waited a few days and I think they’ll have a longer life span.
Here’s the latest knit graffiti in Vernon; just a set of nut warmers. Bonus picture though – a little tree cozy (very blurry) with the Vernon Winter Carnival hot air balloons gearing up for competition at Polson Park in the background. 

 
I’m almost done a big scarf for a banister on a staircase going into the the park from hwy 6. It’ll be purple and white stripes.  Sound be cute.  I just have to make a few more inches of length and then find the time to discreetly put it in place.  It’s at a pretty busy intersection, but I figure, in Vernon, there shouldn’t be any traffic past 8:00 roughly?  Not exactly tourist season. right now.




Knitified Hugkumsmog

Oh dear! 
Okay, Knitified is not saying where this one is.  It’s quite obvious driving past it heading south.  Stands right out, actually, and not just because it’s a big pink weenis.  I’ve been looking at the stub on this tree for a while thinking to myself… hugkumsmog!  Now it’s done.  I wonder how long it stays there?




Knitified Strikes Goddess!

20 11 2009

Okay, so I’ve been really busy teaching sock classes and basic knitting, so I haven’t had much to put up lately.  But here’s one.  A tiny hat to keep this little goddess warm.  She seems to like it.

Oh.  And as pointed out to me, the nuts on PV are no longer warm.  Boo to the maker of cold nuts!  Those nuts deserve to be warm!  Oh well, I guess they made a few weeks of a go there.  Better than the red ones, right?

Knitified Out.

Now this tree will be warm!  And she’ll never be confused about who did this to her.





On nutwarmers and other things.

2 11 2009

The black nut warmers on PV are still there.  Two of the pink ones in Polson Park, however, have been ganked.  One disappeared two weeks ago, and one disappeared this weekend (halloween).  Of course, one of them is the one with the little note about keeping warm nuts.

I’m working on an Extraordinary Series of Literary Knitifications!  I can’t unveil any of them yet, I want them all to go up together, but here’s a hint: Think Paradise Lost.  Think Rape of the Lock.  Think Beowulf.

In the meantime, here’s a fun project.  It’ll be for a branch on a tree.  The next one I make will be a pop-cultural reference.  Maybe the Simpsons?  We’ll see. 

Also included in today’s entry: a couple daytime shots from one of the October nighttime knitifications.

Update

23 10 2009

So the camo nut warmers on PV are still intact and in place.  This is day 3, so I’m up by 50% already. In addition, the pink nut warmers in Polson Park (with the hand-written request to allow them to stay in place) have been respected.  Even as the park workers cleared out all the dead plants, tilled the soil and planted bulbs, they left the nut warmers in place.  How considerate!
