Good Yarn Tagging on Good Friday .. a walk in the Park

Last day of gr'daughter's holiday here today, so we went for a walk in the Park and are very pleased to report that all Yarn Tags left in January are still in position.  Most are looking worse for wear, particularly as they have been out in the blazing sun and the wind and rain, rain, rain.
So to freshen the Park up a bit, we left two new ones today... on a Park bench overlooking the Creek....
and further up the Creek, one on the railings.  Pretty boring colours I know, but these were two from my stash of Op Shop Found knitted squares.

... still added a little brightness to an otherwise, somewhat overcast day.

Hope you all have a happy Easter, I' ll be knitting away getting some work done for the  International Yarn Bombing Day.

International YARN BOMBING DAY ~ Australia Celebrates in Melbourne in June

Saturday, June 11 2011 · 12:00pm - 3:00pm
Federation Square, Melbourne, Vic.  Australia
Cnr Flinders Street & Swanston Street

Just read this over at Twilight Taggers, and had to share.

Federation Square will play host to the 'Lights In Winter' festival for the month of June. A giant structure incorporating lights, lanterns, snowflakes and yarn bombing will be set up for all to see. This will be up for the whole month.

But why not come along on June 11th for International Yarn Bombing Day and see yarn bombing in person. Bring your yarn and knitting needles/crochet hooks/knitting looms and meet others that love this hobby. Never done it before? Come and talk to yarn bombers in person including Bali of Twilight Taggers, and Dee and Aysen of Knit Wits.

In the event of rain, this get-together will meet inside the Time Out Cafe at Federation Square.

Feel free to bring your friends and family along. See you there!

Yes, I will be there, and I will start tomorrow to work on a project for the display at Fed.Square.  I will keep you posted here about my progress.
If you would like to be a part of yarn bombing this structure, please leave a comment so I can give you the details ~~ or check out Twilight Taggers blog.
