That one time, at Sock camp…

"knit me" for yarn bombs

Camp Jabberwonky was “down the rabbit hole” fabulous. I learned a ton and have much still to process. I’ll be going through notes and putting links to the tips I got from all the wonderful knitters and teachers.

But first, my favorite camp activity came from the other side of my very own looking glass : yarn bombing. I started small and adorned the blinds in the buffet room.

Then we had a class on a unique sock sole construction and knit a tiny sample. It was CupcakeFaerie‘s idea to put them on the table legs of the marble table across from the reception desk. This one was mine:

I had so much fun with my partners in yarnbombing: @cupcakefaerie, @irishgirlieknit, @snbleslie, @kzooerica, @chairelknits

We all started working on a larger piece, passed it around so we all worked a bit on it and installed it on the last day. I didn’t get a picture but a certain Canadian Knitting Blogger did!
