Some of you may remember that I discovered Yarn Bombing this past summer. I love anything that involves spreading goodness anonymously – so it must be why May Day was always one of my favorite holidays growing up. (Does anyone do May Day?)
Well, my mother-in-law, secretly known as the “yarn doodler,” is one creative, inspiring woman – that is for sure. On her last visit she…er…um…I mean…the “yarn doodler”…dropped a yarn bomb at our neighborhood park at Kestan’s request. After I left a felted flower at our local farmer’s market, Kestan started making his own knitting creations (balls of tangled yarn) to be secretly dropped in locations of his choosing. So he was more than ecstatic to share this experience with his cool grandma.
With hammer in hand, together they discovered a new happy home for this felted flower – in perfect view from the swings and slides so Kestan could see it each time he visited the park. (Unfortunately it was gone after a few weeks, but that is the exciting nature of “yarn bombing” – you just never know where it will travel to next.)
So today I’m thanking the “yarn doodler” (due to her sleuth yarn bombing international skills – her name must remain anonymous.) YOU…knitting-felting-painting-dancing-full-of-joy-and-love-beautiful-woman…are such a source of happy light in our lives. Thank you for all you do for us and thank you for being YOU!
And as a thank you to one of YOU, the “yarn doodler” herself is giving away a hand-made flower like this one – ready to be dropped anonymously at a location near you.
For your chance to win, simply leave a comment here and I’ll announce the yarn bomb winner this weekend. And you can still enter to win yesterdays give-away HERE.
