Last weekend I stumbled upon a great book- Yarn Bombing: The Art of Crochet and Knit Graffiti by By Mandy Moore and Leanne Prain. The book is beautifully put together and offers a history of yarn graffiti, as well as how to start your own projects, and patterns for knit graffiti. I didn't realise how much of a movement was going on with yarn bombing, especially here in Canada. I've been thinking about trying it for a long time and this book may have just given me that extra inspiration (along with great tutorials) to try it sometime. Edmonton gets so cold & gray in the winter, I think some urban & natural landmarks/features could use a little cozying up.
La Dolce Vegan. I'm not vegan- I'm vegetarian... but I always try and incorporate vegan recipes into my meals, and I just love it when it happens "by mistake" ie, i didn't even plan it.
Anyhoo, if you get a chance, check these books out they are both rad.
And, the blog is still a work in progress- if you have any comments, please feel free to email me... Is the font too small? Does something hurt your eyes? Viewing things on the web seems to change from screen to screen.
Happy Thanksgiving to those of you who are celebrating! Perhaps some of us will be indulging in some homegrown beets, the inspiration for my latest yarn:
