Do you know what day it is today?

It's International Yarn Bombing Day, of course.

What do you mean, you didn't get the memo?

I really wanted to join in, but I can't knit!  (or crochet)

So I thought, what else can I do with a ball of wool?  Pom poms of course!









So I made up a few this afternoon:


...and then we headed out to find somewhere to put them....

After a little bit of thought, the perfect spot became obvious....the statue of the bathers over by the Link Centre....

One of the poor chaps seems to have lost his nose:


I'm sure I can help him with that....


That's better :D


His two friends got nose jobs too:


Here's hoping they bring a smile to somebody's face

By next year, maybe I'll have got the hang of knitting?

Love the nose jobs! What a perfectly cute idea! I wish I had remembered to put some sort of tag about IYBD ON the installation. It had a little tag, but really just contacty stuff. next time.

nice work!
