I had a sample of some very nice dark green yarn and I had no idea what to do with it. Then lucky, I started doing yarnvent. I realized that it was perfect to make some mistletoe. It was quick and easy to make, and super fun to put into use. I put it at the very lovely gazebo that Dryden has as you enter downtown from the underpass. It just seemed like the perfect place to steal a sweet kiss from your main squeeze.
So yesterday it was so warm it actually rained. This is a very rare occurrence in the north in the middle of December. In fact, it hasn’t been this warm (according to my mother) since she and my father roofed the house in December almost 30 years ago. Well it inspired me to make this melted snowman. Since the weather was not so nice today I placed him indoors, and if you are lucky you will see him at the Arena watching the skaters.
I still had some bright yellow yarn left, and not enough to make another bell but just enough to make some stars. So I did. These are perfect little wishing stars, and may all your holiday wishes come true.
I had some florescent yellow left over and didn’t know what to do with it. I decided to make these jingle bells and leave them on the bell in front of one of the churches in town. I think they are very pretty, and they practically glow.
The walls of this apartment building are so white and blah. I wanted to cheer them up a little bit. They also have these mysteries ledges so I made a snow man to sit on it. It is so cute and he looks good there. I hope people enjoy his presence.
For Day 11 of yarnvent calendar I put out some scarves and hats on statues in Winnipeg in hopes that someone who is cold, or homeless would take them and use them to keep warm this winter. Everyone needs to stay warm in the winter, especially when you live in one of the coldest cities in Canada. Happy Holidays to whoever found them and took them to use.
