For a sweet little girl

I ended up having to do some babysitting this weekend. My niece came over and we watched Harry Potter (again).
I decided to crochet to keep myself busy while she asked a million questions. I never actually realized how difficult it could be follow prisoner of Azkaban, especially when you're 5.
Anyways, I decided to try and make a flower. I did it without a pattern (because I'm not very good at following patterns) and I was actually very surprised at how well it turned out. I think I could make a better one next time, and maybe make a bunch of them.
Either way, it made my niece very happy.

Tag around another town: The final chapter

So for my last tag, I went for artistry. Haha, not really, but what I liked about this tag was the no posters allowed. I should have dragged the tag up and covered it, but I like that in the face of saying I can't put posters up, I put Yarn Graffiti up instead.

This was just off Whyte ave in Edmonton's south end.

I think this might just be my favorite one so far.

So I feel like this next tag was a little rebelious. I was on an Edmonton public transit bus with a group of my friends, and decided to tag the bus. Knowing full well that the tag would be gone probably by the end of the day, I decided to do it anyways.

Personally, I thought the red complimented the blue of the bus nicely.

Tag around another town: Part Deux

More tags from my lovely reading break vacation.

This one I did at West Edmonton Mall. I was looking for a really good place to drop a tag, but I couldn't really find one. I had this simple two stitch tag, so I decided to put it around the pay phone. Check out the ice palace in the background.

Bit of a lame tag, I know. But I am just starting out, so I like trying all kinds of things. Maybe some day I can have a tag on everything.

So I recently went on vacation to Edmonton. I know, Edmonton in February, when I live in sunny B.C. Silly right? But I have some friends there; Friends that thought my Yarn bombing was so awesome.
So I managed a couple of tags while I was there.

The first one I did was on a fire hydrant near my friends place. I think fire hydrants should be red, so I made it a lil redder.

Spur of the moment!

So while I was listening to lecture today in class, I decided to whip up a quick little tag from my lecture hall.

This was my first actual out in the public tag. I didn't label it as my own, but I felt so happy seeing it tucked under the chairs.

This is the first of many quick little tags. I am going on vacation soon and hope to get shots of tons of cute lil ones all over!

First entry, First Tag

Hello Internet,

Like many people, I recently had the pleasure of coming in contact with the book "Yarn Bombing: the art of crochet and knit graffiti". The concept of knit graffiti or yarn bombing thrilled me and I was immediately compelled to start in on the fun myself.

So under my tag name Grandmother's Legacy, I have started tagging up the world.

I hope you enjoy my work and are inspired to knit the world a better place.
