Merry x-mas yarn bomb

Merry X-mas to all who celebrate it.
For everyone else, there is yarn bombing.

This year, I decided to ramp up my yule pole from last year.
I added a sign this year.

To the North pole everyone! It's a lot closer this year!

Just down the street in fact!

My niece came with me. She really enjoyed the North Pole yarn bomb.

I must admit however that it was rather hacked together at the last moment. I really wanted to do an x-mas yarn bomb, but spent most of the holidays very sick. Anyway, I did manage to do it!

I hope everyone likes it and had a happy holiday!

Impromptu yarn bombing

One day, I was heading to the mall.
Couldn't have been much more than two weeks ago, maybe early December, later November time.
It was raining at the time, and I really just wanted to get into the mall and grab a tea. I don't think I was having a particularly good day.
When suddenly, I happen upon an abandoned knit item.
Now, I didn't think it was a scarf. It may have wanted to start it's life out as a scarf, but it still had stingy ends hanging at either end; I'm not even sure one end was even tied off. It simply looked like someone's work-in-progress had fallen out of their bag.
So I recovered the piece from where it had fallen in the dirty, wet grass, and placed it on an empty pole in front of a parking space. The pole too must have had a greater purpose once upon a time. Perhaps it was handicapped parking, or marked off small cars only.
Either way, the two of them joined together to make a lovely impromptu yarn bomb.
I hope they made each other very happy.
I know they made my day a whole lot better.
I realized that I haven't been doing as much yarn bombing this year as I have in previous ones. Here's hoping that for 2012, I get back in the swing of things and bring you all some amazing yarn bombs.
With that in mind,
Do you remember the 21 days of yarnbombing last November?
Well, that spider from Day 3 is STILL UP!
Oh yeah! 13 months and counting!
Of course, it has clearly seen better days...
