Yarn Bomb.


It's official, I'm a rebel.  A rebel with a cause, that is.  My mission... to paint the town with yarn.

I was so excited when Meredith from One Sheepish Girl decided to put together a Sheepish Yarn Bomb Day. I knew it was the perfect time to try out this cute (and free!) bow pattern, which Meredith featured on her blog this week as well. I had so much fun being sneaky and leaving this colorful little surprise on an old iron gate.  I hope it brings a smile to someone's face. I know it brought one to mine.



Wanna participate in the Sheepish Yarn Bomb Day?  There's still time.  Grab some yarn and go out bombing! Not a knitter or crocheter? Check out this simple heart design that anyone can do.

Be sure to share your yarn bomb too. It is so fun to see what everyone is doing. Hashtag #sheepishyarnbomb for Instagram and Twitter. Meredith is also planning on doing a group post on her blog next week.  

So what are you waiting for??? Join in!! All the cool kids are doing it. (How is that for peer pressure?? lol!)  ;)

And, whether you decide to be a yarn bombing rebel or not ... HaPpY weekend guys!!

UPDATE: #sheepishyarnbomb day was a huge success.  Check out the details at Meredith's blog, One Sheepish Girl.

  10. Love your yarn bomb! I picked a really busy spot for mine so it was difficult to do it without being spotted. There were even police around at one point! I got my boyfriend to help to hehe!

    Such fun and I love the pretty colours you have used.

    1. I was definitely nervous. Luckily,a storm was coming so not too many people were out and about. That helped settle my nerves. I told Meredith it was a bomb and dash so I could escape the downpour. lol!

      I LOVE your bomb. The tags were genius and the statue looked so cozy in his scarf. Thanks so much for the shout out :)
