Initiating GraffitiKnit Manouvres

My first graffitiknit gig, to coincide with International Yarnbombing Day, June 11th

 It all begins with inspiration and one of the best books on the subject: Yarn Bombing, the Art of Crochet & Knit Graffiti by Mandy Moore & Leanne Prain.


Location, location, location! 
For my initiatory action = the General Store Community Art Group building.....looking a little drab and bare, could do with some colour & interest.


Collection of knitting wool & needles.....I have decided to use only donated wool (from family, friends, colleagues) and if I really must buy something, its going to be from garage sales, thrift stores, market stalls (easing my conscience via second hand consumerism).


The Plan: take measurements of the target, draw up rough guide for the tag, write it all down in my Art Journal in case of copyright disputes (ha ha)

Ready to rock & roll....or in this case, sit & knit..!
