Turning Up the Heat

The project has been getting some buzz...

Here is the Lion Brand Yarn blog post. They include a link to download instructions, among other things.

Here is a post on a new blog called GeekMom.

Maker Faire has been chatting it up on their Facebook page and a local paper is doing a story sometime soon. The reporter seemed amazed to learn of the world of yarnbombing and, in general, the passion with which knitters approach their craft. I forget that, to people not involved in knitting, it all looks kind of strange. She kept saying things like, "Really??" and "Are you kidding?" She also kept wanting me to pin down what a typical knitter is like but I really couldn't say. Other than loving knitting, I can't think of anything that makes someone become a knitter. Can you? And to me, that's the beauty part because it means we can meet all sorts of people, share our common interest, and learn all sorts of other things at the same time.

But we can discuss this further next Monday and Tuesday evening, right? There is still time to make a square for Maker Faire...

ok, i just checked out OfTroy's squares on Rav. Mine are not nearly as cool as hers, in fact, mine are boring and not cool at all. oh well, maybe i'll try to get more creative on the next one.
