We had enough knitted parts and pieces to cover several large parking posts, the arms of the benches that circle the historic fountain ...
The post of this historic bell ...
And my friend Theresa and I knitted a banner that we hung above the front sliding glass doors. Soooo cute! We were laughing cause it looked like the nautical alphabet ... hope we didn't spell out an obscene word!
Here's a glimpse of us all working fast as the last of daylight was slipping away.
Sweet friend Cate of Mixed Greens came to help and brought her friend Irene ...
These are Libby's amazing creations ... the texture and colors are wonderful.
And my friends Gilda and Maggie mapping out the next piece to cover another post.
And Libby and Anna ... yaking it up and trying to find the perfect spot for the Where's Waldo piece I knit.
And here's the children's librarian, Damitri, showing off her super fast whip stitch techniques.
Thanks to all my productive knitting friends, Anna, Libby, Theresa, Jennifer, Betty (my mom), Carolyn, Cate, Irene, Maggie, Rebecca, Judy, Gilda and Mary ...You're the best!
And a huge thanks to Jennifer for all the coordination and to the Orange librarians, Damitri, Rosanne, and Irma ... Enjoy!
And an extra special thank you to my friend Laurie Crutchfield who passed away suddenly a few weeks ago and left behind bags of yarn that I distributed among all my knitting friends. About 75% of all the knitted pieces used in the yarn bombing were knitted from yarn in Laurie's collection.
While we were rummaging through all of Laurie's yarn, we came across this orange strip that she had started to knit. I finished it off and then tied it into a bow, around the bell post. So sweet don't you think?
You'll have to go check out the main library next time you're in the Old Town Orange area. It looks sooooo festive!
