In celebration of International Yarnbombing Week, TheFUZZ (with the help of several Aloha Knitters) installed a variety of knit and crochet pieces on the grounds of the Honolulu Museum of Art’s Spalding House location. In celebration of World Wide Knit In Public Week, members of TheFUZZ will host ‘sit-and-stitch’ hours at Spalding House (every Wednesday and Thursday in June, from 2:00 pm – 4:00 p.m. Bring a project in progress or just come to hang out and take a look at the yarnbombs!
Workshop and lecture times are posted on the Honolulu Museum of Art’s exhibitions page.
I went over to Kokua around 11:00 am today, checking on pieces and adding a few new ones.
Taken down: the ruffle on a shopping cart and the crochet circle on a ti leaf plant. Both have gotten faded and were looking a little bedraggled. These will go back up again after being cleaned and refreshed. Also noted that the bike rack cozy has a new hole in it where it looks like the yarn snagged and tore. We’re discussing this and asking some yarn graffiti groups about what yarns are best for bike racks – we don’t want to interfere with the utility of the rack. I’ll be back with a patch for the bike rack cozy tomorrow.
Put up: more jellyfish – a few new ones and a refreshed one. A new tree sweater has been added. Another rock doily is now in the garden, and a small rock doily was given to Jonathan (a Kokua employee) to carry around in his apron pocket.
Photos with notes on what has been put up, taken down, and notes on the condition of some of the pieces have been added to the Kokua Market Yarnstorming Flickr group.
I went over today and put two refreshed jellyfish back up (washed them, overdyed them with blue food coloring, and stuffed the bells with some roving that had gotten felted in a dye incident gone wrong), one new jellyfish, and a new tree sweater. Another jellyfish was taken down for cleaning and stuffing. Had a nice conversation with a Kokua employee and a Kokua customer – people are enjoying the whimsy!
Quick post to let you know that the Kokua Market yarnstorming will go on through the end of November 2011. I’ve set up a page on this blog (look at the bar on the top of this page; you should see a tab for ‘Kokua Market Yarnstorming‘). We also have a Flickr photo group with photos and video.
