Yarn bombing at the Stitched Up Festival – Part 2

Friday, July 1st, 2011

Here is our contribution to the ‘Dress the Town’ feature of Wangaratta’s Stitched Up festival.
For those of you who contributed but won’t make it to the festival, I have taken lots of pics so you will hopefully spot your bits.

Big Thanks to everyone who knitted, crocheted, embroidered, pom-pommed, and donated wool. I hope you had as much fun as I did. Special thanks to Jude for stitching most of it together, and to her, Sal, Linz and Beck for helping to install it.
Special thanks also to Eileen for knitting so much and so beautifully.
Thanks also to Lisbeth, Sally, Kay, Lynne, the pom-pom kids, Wiebke, Phoebe, Anita, Beck, Sarah, Denise, Beth, The Skinner knitting circle, Nicki, and Ali.

Yarnbombing at the Stitched Up Festival

Monday, April 4th, 2011

I am very excited to be part of a gang who will help to ‘Dress the Town’ as part of this year’s Stitched Up Festival. Myself and a dozen or so others are busy knitting, crocheting, and making pom-poms to decorate the tree outside Scribbler’s cafe.

A special thanks already to Deb, Tianni, Leanne, Beth, Lin and Jude who kept their hands busy while catching up at the annual Skinner family fishing comp on the weekend.

So far: pompoms – 47, crochet samples – 4, knitting – 16cm
