The monsters want to wish you a happy Easter! Today was relaxing and nice. No stresses of a big family dinner, just taking it easy. I started knitting a new monster and when I was almost done with the head, I looked down and realized I was using the same colors as my socks! I really like a pink and neon orange color combination... and I'm always a fan of stripes. :)
Lots more knitting to go. This guy will have fuzzy neon orange and yellow stripes! I can't wait to see him finished... as well as the other 3 armless and faceless guys that are patiently waiting to also be finished.
Neon Fuzziness. Monsterfully happy.
You have no idea how excited I was when I spotted neon furry yarn at Hobby Lobby. Super excited doesn't fully describe it. I bought the neon yellow and orange. They had pink too and I regret not buying one. I thought the yarn was going to be just like Fun Fur, and it kinda is, but it's super long, super bright and super awesome. Everything was super. The only bummer is that it also takes a super long time to fluff them up because the fur is longer than Fun Fur... but the end result is worth it. Whoa! Neon!
Hope these pictures made your day super happy :)
I just finished another pet drawing! I absolutely love drawing animals. This guy is named Simon and he's a black lab mix. The drawing is a surprise gift for a couple's new home! I hope they love it. He's a cutie.
If you're interested in a portrait of your pet, there is more information in the PORTRAIT INFO tab above.
#fredoniayarnbomb Part Two
There was two parts of the "Gone Viral" event that I participated in. One was the outdoor lamp post yarnbomb.the second part was a gallery installation inspired by the Hyperbolic Crochet Coral Reef Project. This project mimics the blue-green algae blooms that affect bodies of water like our nearby Lake Erie. I contributed 38 of these doilies.
To coincide with the "GONE VIRAL" exhibit at SUNY Fredonia that opens this Thursday [March 7th], students, professors, alumni and community members joined forces to yarnbomb the light posts along the main entrance and Symphony Circle. I highly recommend that anyone in the Fredonia, NY area check it out ASAP! Who knows how long it'll be up! Monsters came out to play in a big way... as a monster totem pole! If nothing else, hopefully this yarnbomb will make some people smile. The monsters have a tendency to do that. Here's some pictures!
At least 25 more light posts are now scarfed in bright, cozy covers. I think it definitely brings a little warmth on a frigid 20 degree day. And there's more. Thursday the #algaebloomyarnbomb will be unveiled in the 2nd floor gallery in the Rockefeller Arts Center and it's shaping up to be pretty cool too. Have I ever mentioned how much I love yarn. Well, I do. :)
If you can, it's worth seeing in person :)
