The Time Is Upon Us!

So, fellow knitters/crochet-ers...

It has come to my attention that it is getting colder and we need to continue to make articles of clothing that make our bodies (and parts of our communities) warm. I propose some kind of gathering to eat food and drink beverages with lots of knitting and crocheting.

I am offering up my apartment in Hard-Hittin' to people who wish to come and make merry!

Tweet, facebook, email, call, or use some other form of social networking to contact me and we will find a time that works best for everyone.

I'll leave with this beautiful picture of some delicious-ness. :)

Meeting Updates!

I'm planning on making a visit to the West End Hartford Farmer's Market on Tuesday. Is anyone free in the afternoon?  I thought we could have a fresh produce picnic and then do some stitching. I have a bunch of pieces I need help putting up, too!

If you can't make it on Tuesday, we're meeting on Wednesday at Vegas Blvd. 7pm.
See ya there!

Furry Love

This was brought to my attention by local foto favorite, Caleb Portfolio!

neozoon is a collective of female street artist that create wall art using old fur coats. the installations up cycle second hand furs cut into silhouettes of animals. the pieces each use a different animal and a different fur each time. while most of their installations consists of silhouettes they have also recently begun exploring the third dimension, molding furs into forms that resemble animals such as monkeys. these fur forms are them places on trees and other obstacles in the urban environment, appearing to be playful zoo animals in the city.

Chicks 'n Poles

I haven't posted in a while! You know how things have been...

I have been crocheting like crazy! Every I visit Vegas Blvd I have been crocheting around a different bar of their outside canopy. Pictures next week.

And with a little help from my friends I bombed a light pole on Sisson. I need a daylight picture to really do it justice. It's really high up there right across the street from Vegas.

Meeting will be next Wednesday at Real Art Ways. 7pm!

I Did It!!!!

So I'm at our S&B meeting last night. I have a really good time, saw some friends, drank some beer. Watched my friend sing a little (open mic night). Even saw a friend I haven't seen in months (yay!).

So after having such a good time, I realize that I haven't put up a bomb 'cause I'm just being lazy. Not all of it is my fault. It's been hot, work was murder. But it's just not up. So I decide to change that!

It's at the corner of Washington and Lafayette, near the statue of Columbus and a little behind the statue of Lafayette. It seemed like the right place for it.

I feel good about how last night went...
