To Bring You Joy

I was supposed to be going to my Dad’s this weekend, with Jane. Plans were changed when someone, over the last few days, shared a bit of Blech and instead I’m sitting at home with a deep, husky voice, a headache and dizziness.

Ah, well.  It’s always a good time to catch up and see what’s going on in the world.

Take a gander at this video. It made me smile and I hope it makes you smile, too.

Oh! And read the post* that goes along with it. Wonderful people, knitters!

The woolly-walk-along

On September 10th, 2011 a band of knit-happy taggers took to the Devonport Wharf in Auckland, New Zealand to create a one-of-a-kind art piece. Collected knits from around the world were attached together to create The Woolly Walk Along, an eclectic and awe-inspiring testament to the creative spirit.

Early that foggy morning a team of volunteers led by Helene Dehmer set out to tag the length of Devonport Wharf with knit. Organised to celebrate the launch of the New Zealand Rugby World Cup, The Woolly-Walk-Along was made up of pieces knitted by over 90 people from 9 countries and mailed to New Zealand.

Several of the pieces were auctioned to support the city of Christchurch, which suffered an earthquake and aftershocks this year.

Conceived and organised by Knitting Artist and Woolly Tagger Helene Dehmer –knittygraffity.blogspot.com

  1. Sure did make me smile. That is definately the best yarn bomb I’ve ever seen! I almost don’t want to call it that. More like performance yarn-art maybe? Yart? Feel better!!

  2. Laurie! I’m so glad you found my blog! It’s been forever! I hope things are going well for you, I’m looking forward to catching up on everything!
