Reap &Sew: The Battle Of Making Up

Like a Sherman tank trekking over the crest to its destination, the time for the upcoming yarn bomb is drawing near. Little bits of cleverly created pieces are making their way into Yankee Yarns ( the Yarn Bomb HQ). Our Yarn Bomb General and her lieutenants have been out to survey the area. Tape measures and mental calculations have been all over the Mansfield Market area. Hookers (crocheters… not the rugby players etc) and Knitters from all over the Mansfield area have rallied providing the most wonderful pieces.

Now is the time to piece them all together and make them up. Now this is the point of the project where so many knitters and crocheters falter. How many times have I heard the same lamentation: “Love working on my project but absolutely HATE sewing them all up!” The dread of making up the pieces even called for the idea of getting some experts in. The Girl Guides! Yes! Like little paratroopers, they will be deployed to help us out in the battle of Making up! I love the idea of that.

At last night’s knitting circle, we discussed the upcoming “Making Up Meeting” at Veolia on June 3rd from 10am to 4pm. Hopefully we will have enough people turn up to help put together all the fantastic pieces as well as have a bit of a giggle and copious amounts of tea and coffee. Who knows… there might be cake…

Hoping to see you there!
