This week's Cool2Craft TV show is about yarn. I've been inspired by my friend, Mary England, to try a yarn bomb, so I made and installed one on Historic 25th Street in downtown Ogden, Utah. It's not very good, but it's only my first try.
Below is my second try and it's a little different.
I love the idea of yarn bombing, but I'm a slow and inexperienced knitter. I had an idea to combine yarn bombing with a random-acts-of-kindness sort of thing. Mary leaves surprises and gifts for strangers all over Baltimore and D.C. I'm so inspired by her enthusiastic, happiness- spreading journey! I knitted a scarf and attached a laminated card that says "Stay warm dear stranger" My husband gave me the idea when he commented how cold the dinosaur looked after a snow storm. I thought I could tie a scarf on, instead of sewing the yarn in place, and HOPE that someone who needs it would claim it. I realize it's not an actual random act if I tell someone, so pretend you don't know that I did it., okay? I'll let you know what happens!
