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.

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.

Another example of how we couldn't have pulled this off without volunteers! lilikoiknits did this knitted QR code, and it really works! It was a little nail-biting there for a bit - she finished it during an Aloha Knitters meeting and we started testing it out with our smartphones right away. We must have sounded like we were celebrating a sports team win when it worked. 


International Yarnbombing Week 2012 (part 1)

Crochet Tree Sleeve

  • standing on a ladder for several hours is like doing a LOT of calf raises

  • doing an entirely crocheted tree limb sleeve is awesome, but next time I may use a knitting machine for at least part of it

  • fairy terns are really noisy
