So to play catchup, I guess I'll start with the National Yarn Bombing Day/ Knitting in Public Week celebration that the Stitch & Bitch girls and I had.
We decided to yarn bomb Splash Pad Park by Lake Merritt since the Oakland Fiber Festival was going to be held there in a month, and we wanted our installation to be a part of it. As you can see from the picture above, we wrapped strips around the row of trees that goes across the park. Most of the strips were actually scarves my mom has made me over the years, and I thought this was a way cooler way of using them instead of giving them away when it came time to cull my massive collection. We also put a few swatches to good use around poles and parking meters.
You can check out detail shots of each tree in my flickr set, as well as see photos of our friend's new puppy, just cuz he's so stinkin' cute! Anywho, the day after our very successful yarn bombing (and yes, they're still up two months later), we got together for our usual Stitch & Bitch meetup except we held it outdoors in the park by the lake, and Erin made cake!
Did I mention I have the greatest group of friends ever? I don't think I could ever say it enough; I love these girls!
Well, that's one event down and, like, 40 to go. I hope everyone else is having as much fun this summer as I am! What has been your favorite thing you've done so far? I'd love to hear it!
