International Yarnbomb Day

International Yarnbomb Day falls on the same day as Knit in Public Day. I find this very convenient because yarnbombs make great decorations for events.

Pretty In Purls and Knittin’ Kitten were very pleased to provide all the decoration for the local WWKIP event.

World Wide Knit In Public Day

It was wonderful to be a part of WWKIP day this year. It is the largest knitter run event in the world, and it all started in 2005. This year, I was able to attend an event, and it was a fantastic day. The weather was lovely, and the rain held off until after it was all over. Several knitters showed up, a spinning wheel made an appearance too.

One of the projects started, worked on, and finished was a roving blanket. It was made with PVC pipe and roving donated by the local sheep farm. It was fantastic and people really enjoyed it.

Apologies

I haven’t put out anything or posted in awhile and for that I apologize. I know it seems like I have been slacking, but I promise I have been busy behind the scenes. I have been working on creating some decorations for Knit in Public Day on June 9th. There is going to be a celebration right in front of Dryden’s Town Hall, unless it is raining then it will be in the Library. Since this is an open to the public and free event I really want to create some decorations. Hopefully I can make something worthy. You should come on out on June 9th anytime between 10-4 to chat and knit or crochet. We would love to see lots of people there.

Yarnvent Day 24 – Decorating The Tree

I love looking at decorated trees during the holidays. Some of them are so spectacular you can’t help but look at them with a little bit of awe. Some of my favourite decorated trees are actually the ones that are outside. There are a few in town that I could think of that take my breath away. Since it is the last day of yarnvent calendar, I thought I would so something a little bigger than I have been so I wanted to decorate an entire tree. It took me most of the morning to make this yarnbomb so I hope it brings a smile to your face.
