Lets help raise crochet awareness!!! The Yarn Bombing Los Angeles group has been invited to bomb the entire facade of the Craft and Folk Art Museum on the historic Miracle Mile. This is such a big deal! Wilshire Boulevard is a major street and thousands of locals and tourists visit the street every day for work, appointments, museums, food trucks and more! How could you not want to be a part of this?!
Don’t worry there is plenty of time to crochet a square and learn to crochet a square- the finished squares aren’t due until March 1, 2013. So don’t stress yourself out, knit those holiday gifts and take your time. All the squares must be 5″ x 5″ in the following colors: bright orange, white, bright green or cyan. Here is the page with all the details. You can also visit their Facebook page.
I have already gotten started on my squares… so far I have only crocheted one . If you forgot how to crochet a granny square, there is a fabulous tutorial on the Purl Bee blog for a basic and traditional square (my favorite). You don’t have to get fancy, just pump em’ out- they need thousands. They don’t have to be perfect, so this is a great opportunity for you to practice crochet and granny squares. Here is a photo of my single crocheted square, it’s an experiment, but I did use an awesome yarn, Sincere Sheep Equity Sport! (In a singing voice) Looooooove iiiittt!!!
I hope each and every one of you can find the time to do at least one square! Major brownie points if you do Happy crocheting!! Oh and make sure you shoot the LA Yarn Bombers an email if you are going to send in any squares… they would like to know and give you the credit!
