My living room was taken over by balls of yarn rolling, crawling everywhere. I always need some kind order after awhile - otherwise my sanity starts to become unhinged. Just a little bit - so that things don't look too out of hand - like, I have lost my sanity and it's more important for the yarn to have a life than for me to be able to sit down anywhere.
So, I color coordinated them, and began putting them in yarn "cairns" - but I really needed more than that effort - they were so keen to run away ( it's summer and everything seems to be mating).
Dog's Best Friend - you' ll get it when you see it up tomorrow (fingers crossed!)
Grrl + Dog for the upcoming installation at the museum next month. Some of the locals saw me working on it down at the cafe today - they were getting mighty excited to see a bit of the town make it all the way across the globe. Yeah knitting!
When I scored all the unloved yarn last weekend, I also scored a lot of little bits of knitting a crochet that are fast becoming the base and springboard off which I jump into my Knit Ups for my Yarn Bombing. A lot of work still goes into each piece, but I pick up stitches and knit around the found bits that I have - makes for a more interesting piece of work. Some Knit Ups have both crochet AND knitting - like the little blue and pink piece out in the park (that is what that lovely stitch was, Grrl, a bit of salvaged crochet!)
Alas - the lovely little girly bit of knit graffiti has already left the park - at whose hands, I have yet to know. My other bit on the pole with the sign is still happily puttering along.
I outed myself as a "knit tagger" to my favorite man in blue - and he couldn't imagine why anyone would want to mess with my heartfelt "installations". But he is sworn to secrecy - but, hey, that is one more soul for Yarnachy!
