I'm taking part in an enormous yarn bomb in Sumner in Christchurch. Copied from their facebook page:
"The Christchurch earthquakes have really rocked the Port Hills. To protect us from more rock fall, massive shipping containers are now lining the Sumner and Redcliffs streets. It is necessary however not a beautiful sight, but we can change it!
Container Love is about prettying up these metal giant boxes.
The idea is to turn the unpleasant look of the containers into a positive feature for peop...le to enjoy and comment on.
The present project is a GIANT CONTAINER COSY made entirely out of knitted or crocheted squares
I WILL NEED: 30cm by 30cm KNITTED OR CROCHETED SQUARES
TYPE OF WOOL: DOES NOT MATTER, BUT BOLD AND COLOURFUL IS BEST
PATTERN: ANY WILL DO
WHERE TO SEND TO
email me (email@example.com) and I will give you my postal address, I can also pick up Christchurch and Lyttelton squares."
An update on other yarn bombs. Hug Me tree was taken down 2 weeks ago (by persons unknown), and has been replaced with a heart on the tree behind - picture to come soon :-)
