yarnbombing with all the ingredients

Dateline New Haven, June 9th 2012:  International Yarnbombing Day recognized in the only way possible.  We had everything necessary for success.

That's Ruth Anne at work.
Yarnbombing outside Knit New HavenMy main contribution? This recycled mitten fella. I like its provenance: the yarn was in this batch, the mitten, a reject from this project.  Turning it into a wooly face , instigated by the sidewalk chorus on Saturday after I pointed out the way I was hanging it, unadorned,  looked a little....suggestive. (see? I told you I'd have some of my knitting on this post).
Cathy's working on the little heart, knit in the round. Metaphor alert!

It was fun. I want to do my front railing (but probably won't). Thanks for linking to my blog.

Your wooly face guy makes me smile. Especially when I think of what he might have looked like...
