When your a lone knitter you have to find out on your own what’s going on in the crafting world. Which brings me to why I started reaching out via social media. There’s so much information I was losing out on and so I started following some fellow crafter blogs and Twitter peeps, really branching out of my comfort zone. Then I found it #yarnbombing!
Here’s a few quotes I found on Twitter about yarnbombing.
Mr G@taffinexile “if I could knit… I’d yarnbomb everywhere. This dark world needs brightening up.”
Kristyglassknits@chasing_her “oh how I love this yarn bombing.”
Kathiwilson@midwife “The world would be * so * much better with more yarnbombing.”
Queen Babs@queen_Babs ” I would like to remind you that yarnbombing and fiberart is serious business!”
So yes Queen Babs@queen_Babs I am taking it seriously! To understand this more here is an article I read from Katherine Brooks Knitted Bridge http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/08/10/andy-warhol-bridge_n_3733946.html. It was a great article but that’s to big for me, I need to start at a much smaller scale. I am exploding with excitement right now. Who would of known crafts could have such an affect on a person. Are you passionate about the art? Do you find yourself trending on the latest fads when they’re so fresh or does it take you awhile and a lot of research before you join the band wagon?
Well here’s what I did!
I did the research, I joined the band wagon and started my first yarnbombing mission. I’ll keep you posted till then HAPPY KNITTING!
Here are some other places to research if you are interested.
