Chariots of Fire...or is it crochet hooks?

OLYMPIC FEVER!!! DO YOU HAVE IT!!!! Well, actually no. I haven't had cable in quite some time, plus I've been writing like a slave for my English Lit class, so that I don't have to do it in the fall. Totally worth it. But if anyone wants to invite a sad, burnt-out college student to their house for booze and Olympics, I would certainly not say no.

 Until then, there is this.

I can't even imagine, ever, ever having this kind of time.  The person who knit this, give them ALL of the gold medals.  Now.  Call off the games, they are over.

In yarnbomb news,  I have all of the elements for my next project complete.  It is all a matter of assembly and execution.  I am no longer promising when, two deadlines have gone by since the last time.  Just know it will be soon, and I will let you all know.

Get Ready! (maybe get a little rowdy)


So it's time you know. I have decided that even though I have loved being here in Washington DC, it's time for me to come back to granny square one. (Haha, get it?)  I'm coming back to the Hartbeat this weekend, and this time it's for good. In celebration of my time here in DC, I created a fence yarnbomb, as a goodbye to the city.

This guy took me awhile to install, and it's sewn and ziptied on there. I have had a great run here, but a breakup and job troubles and (most recently) punk kids throwing trash at me have made me decide to come back to the beat. My heart has always been in the beat... See?

More pics later :)  See you next week!!

Long Distance Relationship

Dear Long Lost Knitters,
I miss you, so I have been crocheting up a storm to represent my hometown. I had some competition on Valentines day. There were a bunch of yarnbombers in Dupont Circle with hearts, but they were taken down awhile ago. Mine have been doin pretty well though. I hope everyone is doing fantastically and I think about you guys every time I whip out a cable tie.

Here is a pic of my valentine's yarnbomb....I put another one up on twitter, but I wanted to share how I did it...Every metro car I was in for the entire day of Valentines, I put up a Heart on the top of the rails. I miss you guys, so I have to get into my own mischief. :)

Also, I went on a big adventure yesterday on my bike. I had a bunch of pieces I wanted to put up, and let me tell you, it's kinda hard to do so without a lookout. We all know I'm not so tall, so I have a story about one of the new pieces.

This one is in Grant Circle. It's in the middle of a traffic circle in the next neighborhood over from my place. I wanted to show that I'm still reppin the crew, so I took my pics wisely. I didn't want to yarnbomb any of the cherry blossom trees because they're pretty enough, but I know there is a man who plays his djembe in this park, so I thought I'd make it more comfy for him.

This next one, I'm pretty proud of. It is in an intersection next to a bus stop, so it'll get noticed, definitely. I didn't need any help getting this one done. Its about a little higher than my head.

This is the bomb I'm most proud of, on account of it's next to a bar called Meridian Pint, and it's up quite far. I did have to climb up on top of the post, and I almost fell a couple of times, but it was worth it. I know that many a drunk person will be confused by it, and it's bright pink, so it will stand out when the sun is going down this summer.

Stay tuned for what's goin down this easter... I'll give you a hint. Egg-celent, right? *punch me next time you see me for making up such silly puns*
