yarn bombing report on openfile.ca

A little over a week ago, I mentioned to my Facebook and Twitter followers that I was contacted by a reporter from Openfile.ca about my yarn bombing exploits. The article is up! It went up last week and this is a testament to how busy I’ve been, I am just getting around to announcing it now. Some weeks there are just not enough hours in the day.

Although I have not recently joined a yarn bombing group (yes, I am still a lone yarn bomber, working to put a smile on the faces of strangers), the article is accurate and short. I took a screen capture for the sake of posterity.

You can read the article online at Openfile.ca as well.  Thank you Laura for including me in your article, it was great fun talking to you about yarn bombing!

Are you inspired to yarn bomb?

seasonal inspiration

It’s been a joyful Yuletide season here, full of food, family and friends. The past couple of days we have been happily homebound now that our seasonal gatherings have come to an end. The calm has been nice, it has given me a bit of time to figure out my new phone and work on a little knitting. In the midst of all the hustle and bustle, I have not wanted to forget those images and places that have inspired me this Yuletide season. There have been so many amazing party and decor and crafty ideas out there, and I don’t want to forget them! Here is a peek at what has inspired me this season!

Cookies from Sweetopia’s Facebook page. OMG I just love these! Whenever I look at this picture it just makes me smile and fills me with warm fuzzies.

Candy covered Christmas trees at Teatro Verde in Toronto. Pic from Bakerella’s blog. I shoulda bought that ice-cream cone!

Yarn wreath also from Teatro Verde in Toronto. Bad picture taken with my old phone, but it really is lovely and squishy and made of wool.

A lovely red and white ripple afghan that I found on Etsy. I must find a similiar pattern to knit one myself, it’s just so Christmas-y!

Knit stockings.

Which prompted me to run and pick up a copy of The Stockings Were Knit by Leisure Arts, just for the stocking on the cover. That stocking is PERFECT for my youngest daughter. Thank goodness the local Michael’s had two in stock!

What inspired you this holiday season?
