Shawl Kit…..and…..Yarn Bombing! (Not related)

Last Christmas 2011 I received a gift from my son and future daughter-in-law…….an Artyarns kit. 

Just finished!  http://artyarns.com  has some beautiful yarns and this kit is not so bad either!  This colorway combination is called Purple Velvet.  The yarn has glitter and beads woven into silk fibers (very soft).  It turned out smaller than intended (used smaller needles).  The shawl is knit from the top down (love it) and a pretty easy pattern to knit from.  Oh….. and the kit comes with a pattern to knit or crochet, your choice!  Mine is knitted of course : )

On a different subject, this morning on the SD morning news http://www.fox5sandiego.com.  Yarn Bombing or Yarn Graffiti has made an impact in the Clairemont, Ca. area.   A man has knitted about 100 flower leaves for stop signs (really quite pretty).  The law requires that they must come down but a city council member is working hard to see that the yarn bombing stays in place (yay). 

I would love to hear reader’s opinions on this……in a way this is graffiti but then again is it art?  Should it stay up?  Have you heard of Yarn Bombing?  Would you do it?  If you check out the Fox 5 link above, scroll down to almost the bottom, you will see a video link.

Happy knitting : )
