I've finally finished April's goal! Just over a month late, but given how many years ago I started it, who cares right?
I've started knitting with a little group at Yarn & Co on Sunday afternoons and if it hadn't been for those solid hours of finishing off in the last few weeks it would still be sitting in a bag in the cupboard.
The crew from Yarn and Co celebrated International Yarn Bombing Day yesterday by yarn bombing a pole out the front of the store – can't wait to see how that's turned out later this afternoon. Two sisters dropped off their yarn-bombing contribution to the store last week while I was there. They were telling us that they hadn't been able to think of a present for their 87-year-old Mum for Mother's Day recently, so they decided to yarn bomb a tree out the front of her house as their gift. How gorgeous is that?
Apparently they had quite a hard time trying to measure the tree as their Mum always comes to the window to see who's parked out the front. I asked what Mum had thought about the present and they said she wasn't sure at first, but since all the neighbours have started commenting about it, she quite likes it now!
I can just imagine my Nana would have been exactly the same. I can hear her saying "why would you want to go and waste good wool knitting a jumper for a tree?", but then being quite chuffed if all the neighbours started to call it "Merle's tree".
