I’m in your tree, covering it in yarn

Literally. Today was the day — the official yarnbombing of Joy Kogawa’s cherry tree. I contributed about 100 blossoms and arrived this afternoon to help install the yarn blossoms (and bark!) on the tree. The executive director of the Historic… Continue Reading →

Cherry Blossom Yarn Bombing Prep

A couple months ago I saw a tweet from Leanne Prain, one of the authors of the book Yarn Bombing: The Art of Knit and Crochet Graffiti. The tweet linked to the yarn bombing website and said they were organizing… Continue Reading →

Seen: Yarn Bombing in Halifax, NS

My sister was in Moncton, NB, this summer for the Explore program. She also did some travelling and spotted this tree in Halifax. She emailed it to me and I’m (finally) posting it. Bonnie wrote in the email, “This was… Continue Reading →

No, I have no knitting to show. But I do have lovely lovely yarns. Non-yarnies, look away now. Yarn-a-holics, grab a towel, you might drool. First up, my package from The Loopy Ewe: I decided to see what all the… Continue Reading →

Crocheting Flowers

A few months ago, Sara (aka wenchlette) asked us if we’d make flowers for her wedding bouquet in the summer. Sara has asked the flowers to be purple or teal and prefers natural fibres. Of course we all whole-heartedly agreed…. Continue Reading →

I can haz yarnz!
