International yarn bombing day 2012

Whew.

I don't know about any of you, but installing the largest yarn bomb I have ever done, was a lot of work.
Today, I set out to complete the best International Yarnbomb that I could think of.
I had a picnic!

And set up my picnic yarn bomb.

With yarn food and yarn drinks, my friends and I added real food and real drinks and had a wonderful picnic.
There was even boccie ball!
I installed vines of flowers around the gazebo the picnic table was under.

And in addition to the whole picnic spread, I yarn bombed two of the empty poles up by the road.


Some of you may recall this location from the Knotty by Nature yarn bomb, from their grand opening. It is part of why I came back to this location for International yarn bombing day. They are such a great crew over there.

Here is a picture of Brandy installing one of them. I wasn't tall enough to get it up there. I am so glad I have awesome friends!

And here's Brandy installing the other.

To top it off, I added one little mushroom, alone in the grass beside our picnic.
I had so much fun! So many people came by and told me they loved it. Some even said I was an inspiration. My insides melted with that. This is why I yarn bomb. Because it genuinely makes people happy, interested, excited; all these positive wonderful emotions.

I hope you all have had a wonderful International Yarnbombing Day! And if you haven't had a chance yet, go out and yarn bomb something!

    1. Sarah Kramer is good for so many things! Glad the mushroom spoke to you, but not in a hallucinogenic kind of way! ;)

    1. Awww, kids are awesome! I am so glad that they enjoyed it. Playgrounds are a wonderful thing to bomb because of children.
