Run in with the LAW!!
Tonight on a whim I decided that it was time to test out the free form, non-knitting yarn bomb. The idea is kind of like cross stitching a fence, and what I realized is that it is WAY too time consuming to do on the sly. I think I’ll stick to knitting, thank you.
I started out by myself and then my lookout came. I’m very thankful he came because I think I would have peed my pants had I been alone when THE COPS PULLED UP. Yeah, maybe I shouldn’t have had my hood up and looked all suspicious. I only had it up because it was cold and we had taken the photo you see above. It’s funnier if I wear my hood up while I do it, like I’m a criminal or something! But yeah, about 20 minutes after I started a cop pulled up right next to us, got out of his car and approached us and my heart started beating like crazy. All I could think was, I can’t get arrested for this, right? RIGHT? And yes, that IS right. When he saw what I was doing, he laughed and explained that they have a lot of people stealing from construction sites and that he has to check out suspicious activity, and to go ahead and keep doing what I was doing. I love the way he laughed, like OH, I see, you’re doing something dorky and weird, whatever! Go ahead! So I thanked him and finished up my project. YAY!
This was my first real run in with the cops ever, so I’d say I’m living a pretty lawful life, wouldn’t you say?
The piece is small and very imperfect, but it’s cute and colorful so I’m going to say success. Especially with that whole evading arrest situation.
