Since a long time I am dreaming of leaving a footprint in London by yarn bombing something . But I didn’t know what, where, when or how. It is slightly overwhelming, I guess. Initially I thought of our nursery, kind of on the last day before we left for good. But they closed it so that would not be that impressive, would it.
If you don’t know what yarn bombing is, just look at Lorna and Jill’s website. They are two yarn bombing sisters and my super heros and do amazing stuff.
But then, a couple of months ago a friend of mine asked me if I was interested to be part of a yarn bombing community project. Of course I was.
Corner 9, a local charity which offers arts and crafts projects, has set up a workshop over 4 Saturdays where a lovely and pretty but slightly tired and forgetful tutor will help those who need it to knit up some rectangles which will then be sewn together by said tutor and hopefully some lovely helpers to wrap a warm and colourful coat, scarf or however you want to call it around a sad little dead tree:
After 4 weeks of hard work there will be a little celebration in the garden where we can all admire the result of our collective work. I am really looking forward to it and I am hoping to see many people there (not only because I realised how little knitting time I have these days 🙂 )
So if you live in the area and want to be part of it, bring your family and your needles and get knitting! On two of the four sessions there will even be a creche provided, you will find all information on the Corner 9 website.
If you live far away, no need to book a flight to admire our work, I promise I will post a picture of the result 🙂
