Bolder Boulder

This past Memorial Day weekend I visited my sister who lives outside of Boulder, Colorado. I knew I wanted to yarn bomb something in Boulder so I looked on online. I came across this "Bull Elk" statue by Jim Agius. I thought it would be great to knit the Elk leg warmers that looked like tube socks.Since I had never seen the statue personally I had to guess what size to make these leg wamers. Luckily they fit!

As I was installing them my sister remembered that the very next day in Boulder was a huge marathon! What amazing coincidence that my yarn bomb worked really well with the neighborhood theme that weekend!

Happy to help this elk get ready to run in the Bolder Boulder.

Stash Buster

... what would you have found?

Finding your parents' stash. What does that mean to you? Did you come across your dad's old Playboy collection? Did you find their bag of pot and rolling papers? Or was it something as innocent as finding your hidden Christmas presents?

For knitters, it's something quite different. A stash is the collection of yarn knitters have.

As you can see, my little boy has indeed "found" my stash.
