While I was perusing my Google Reader one afternoon early August, I came upon an entry from Yarnbombing.com talking about a knit in event happening right here in my town! (http://yarnbombing.com/fancy-fences)
Of course, I was super excited and counting down the days.
The day of, I packed over half of my yarn into my knapsack (along with a couple tags, just in case), and all my hooks XD
Then biked down to Tall Tales Books on Fort st, Victoria BC
It was a wonderful little sit in event, with cookies, and those bite size brownies (which I totally love) and Tea. I had the blueberry tea, which was fabulous XD
I brought a friend of mine along too, because I thought it would be fun. I taught them how to crochet and helped them along with it. We listened to the women talk about things in their lives and it made me realize I really aught to join some sort of knitting group.
I was working on a tag for my bike while we were all sitting there (which I will put in the next post) and one of the ladies asked me what I was doing. I told her it was a tag for my bike. She then asked, what a tag was, so I explained Yarnbombing.
One of the other ladies asked me how I got involved with Yarnbombing and I explained about the Yarnbombing book. She then proceeded to tell me that she knew Leanne, one of the authors of the Yarnbombing book! I was so thrilled, and then to make me even more thrilled, she asked me if I would tag the front of her store.
