International yarn bombing day: The greatest bomb yet!

Leave it to International Yarn Bombing Day to get me to finally go out and bomb my super bomb.
See, I have been taking all the scrap pieces of yarn, all the failed projects, all of it, and adding it together and making a super tree wrap!

Ok, it was no where near the tree wraps that groups do, where the whole tree is covered, but I like to think it's pretty amazing since it's just me, and only a year.
This piece has the very first swatch I ever crocheted. It was what was supposed to be my first tag, but since I botched it, I became disparaged with it. It has a lot of cool things that have cool stories, just not cool enough to be their own tags.


(this shot is from actually up in the tree after I tagged it)
As I said to Alice, who accompanied me on my yarn bombing adventure ( and to whom this tag would not be possible because she hoisted me into the tree so I could tag it), for me, this tag is what it means to do yarn bombing.

(This orange yarn is Alice's contribution)
Well, I hope this International Yarn Bombing Day has been everything you thought it could be.
For me, it was amazing. I'm exhausted.

P.S. I also did this cute poll fungus. I would say more (like, look! a heron!) but I am sleepy.


  1. I love this so much! It looks fantastic!

  2. Wonderful effort! And, not only didn't I know that there's an International Yarn Bombing Day, it falls on my birthday! Happy Hooking!
