So for those of you who don't already know today is International Yarn Bombing Day! It was also the day of my first yarn bomb. I threw together some newly stitched hats and old headbands I had made a while back and took them to a local park.

It was such a rush! I was so excited/nervous. Last night I even dreamed about it. I dreamed that there were park rangers on bikes everywhere and that there was a festival in the park so I couldn't even get to the statues! haha. I'm such a nervous Nelly.

Happy IYBD! If you did any bombing today link it to me in the comments so I can see yours too.

    Diana- you have to! Someone already did the Mary Tyler Moore statue down town (I saw pictures) and my sister and law are talking about doing the Joe Mauer statue when I'm there next month! I am totally obsessed now.

  4. What a brilliantly quirky way to display your creations! To be honest I've never heard of yarn bombing, but this made me smile!

  5. Wow, this is a great yarn bomb! It really adds something special to the statues:)

  6. Awesome! I'm so glad your First Yarnbomb went well, and the headbands and hats and wristwarmers make those statues like, 300% more interesting. :D

    I just wrote up a post about my yarnbombing over here.
