Aftermath of the Pom Pom Bomb at ARTSPREE 2012 - the kids had a great time, thanks to the cheerful and hardworking volunteers! 

 

A short list of resources for the pom-pom making tools, yarn, and other supplies is up at the Aloha Knitters blog.

yarnbomb: abandoned bike lock

While doing "recon" before the Find Art Festival, I started noticing how many bike racks have abandoned bike locks on them, and started thinking about yarnbombing them. This is a crocheted flowering vine, taking over the abandoned bike lock the way vines will take over anything that stays still long enough.

I've been continuing to add to the crocheted tree sleeve at Spalding House and checking on how the sleeve is holding up. So far so good, and as you can see in this photo, I've been able to work around the newly sprouted leaves and branches.

Counterfeit Crochet "crochet-in" this week in Honolulu 

As part of the Find Art Festival, Stephanie Syjuco is holding "crochet-ins" at the Pegge Hopper Gallery in downtown Honolulu. The Counterfeit Crochet Project is an excellent example of craftivism, and ArchiPURLago and I (along with at least a few other Aloha Knitters) are planning to be at the Friday 5:00 - 8:00 PM crochet-in. I'm also hoping to make it over to the panel discussion on Thursday (5:00 - 6:30 PM, The ARTS at Marks Garage) after the sit-and-knit session at The Honolulu Museum of Arts Spalding House (2:00 - 4:00 PM). 

I've been looking at various handbags, and this one from the Tory Burch collection for Resort 2013 caught my eye:
