Adorned Pole

This Disordered Life received the knit-up I sent for her guerilla art project. Since it's in the UK, does this make me an international guerilla artist? ;)

How about knitting mittens for poor cold kids?

That looks great! An international tagger.

I wonder if a long crocheted chain stitch could be wrapped around the poles -- probably would take too much time and run the risk of discovery.

You are a rebel! Well done! I think it's so festive:) Merry Christmas!

Rose - Just a bit of fun.

Anonymous - Some think this is a waste of yarn and that's OK, everyone is entitled to their opinion. I donate to charitable causes in other ways. But tell me of a program that requests home made mittens, I'll check it out.

Riley - Yeah, folks might get suspicious of the lady in the hot pepper pants standing by the pole for two hours.

Green Girl - Merry Christmas to you too!

yeh u are in the international knitting army! I've seen several of the artworkers at Henshaws exploring ur knitup with their hands - it's a great way for people with no sight to appreciate art and they are really enjoying it so a big thanks to you again. xx

Is this for a Festivus pole? In case it is, you'll also need feats of strength and an airing of grievances ;-)

Balou said...

notmassproduced - I'm so glad. I was hoping the textures and sounds would be appealing to the non-sighted.

cube - LOL! I heard on the radio last night that there's somewhere online that sells Festivus poles! Too fun! (Festivus is the made up holiday from the Seinfeld show)

Festivus for the rest of us!
