Thank you West Seattle Blog for putting up another photo of my latest yarn bomb.

Good to see it in daylight, even though it is grey as heck.

YarnCore Strikes Again!

This time in the West Seattle Junction. This one took a little longer to attach, so I got to interact with quite a few more people at this busy intersection. It was good times! Someone even took a photo. It’ll look much better in the light of day. Again, I hope it makes it to light of day, this one was a more time consuming project and I’m quite proud.

What a weekend!

After just one bomb, I’ve been inundated with  emails from people who want to help and people who want to partner up for other events and WOW! I just feel so warm and snuggly from the neighborhood’s reaction to one little piece. Thanks West Seattle, you’re amazing.

If you’ve commented that you want to join up, or if you’ve contacted me via email, expect a response soon. It was a busy weekend knitting and socializing, and it is about to be a busy “day job” kind of week, so I’ll most likely start getting on board with everyone next weekend.

I posted it here, there and everywhere, but The West Seattle Blog did a nice little piece on YarnCore on Friday, and I’m just so happy about it. The comments were very encouraging (save for one person who thinks I am ruining everything with my illegal litter, blah) and I found that another local blogger The Tangled Nest wrote a post about it as well. Thanks for all the support everyone!

In the meantime, I’m knitting away today. I’m focusing on a bigger scale project set for May Day to celebrate Springtime, and I’m going to welcome lots of help. Currently my help is coming in feline form.

My little helper.

I never thought I’d have such a huge bucket of cheap acrylic yarn, but I also never thought I’d have a passion for knit graffiti.

So much Red Heart

My yarn-bomb survived the night, yay! It was VERY soggy this morning, but that is to be expected in Seattle. Here are some shots, the first pretty much gives the location away.

My first yarnbomb!

I braved the rains tonight to sew this little bike rack cozy up in the Admiral District in West Seattle. It was so fun! I mean, even though I sat on the wet ground. A few groups of people walked by, and I certainly got some weird looks, but I also got a lot of smiles! YAY KNIT GRAFFITI!!

Now, please universe, let it not get messed with, taken down or destroyed by jerks for a least a week! Thanks.
