Spring Bomb

I had been feeling rather gloomy this last week with Spring officially coming and still no sign of it really showing up that I decided to take matters into my own hands this week. If Mother Nature wasn't gonna bring spring to my Neighborhood then I was. So I sat down with my knitting needles and my crochet hooks and went to work. I wanted something bright and colorful so I made a pole cozy with some lace on the bottom and lots of color. Then I crochet some flowers and sewed them on. My plan was to put it up on the way from getting my son at his school so I had him be my look out which he loves doing glad I can make it a family affair. :)

Random Act of........

My Random Acts of Yarnbombing started last week with my crosswalk cozies. The buttons on the crosswalk just looks so cold out there in the snow so I had some unfinished Granny Square centers that I re purposed and just picked up stitches around the edge to knit the sides and they fit perfect and for about a day they looked lovely on the buttons in my neighborhood. Then today after not feeling very productive the last few days knitting wise I decided that a sign post in my neighborhood looked cold and lonely on this first day of Spring Pffft sorry but its not Spring here yet in Southern Alberta :( So I whipped up a cozy for that sign post and off I went to bring some color to the neighborhood and to my day.

Nerd Wars Yarn Storm

Being the nerdy knitter that I am I would much rather knit odd things like Bugs and Cozies for stuff hehehehe. Yes I am crazy and some of you know that already. At the beginning of January I joined a group on Ravelry called Nerd Wars PurlGurl A had talked me into this as usual it was a group of like minded people who enjoyed all things Nerdy like Star Wars, Big Bang Theory, Vampires, Star Trek and other Syfy stuff as well. I naturally joined the Star Wars team being a way back when the "Original " Movie first came out I felt it only natural to be part of this band of Rogues. Each month we have 6 challenges that we are given and we are to adapt them to our Team. This month one of our Challenges is to do Yarn Storm in our community well of cource I have to do this one its just right up my alley:) Stay tunned and see what I come up with. In the mean time check out my cool Yoda hat that I knitted and felted for my son.
