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.
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…
