Go big or go home!
Today was the official day of my first real yarn bomb. I've been scoping out this area by our Borders for awhile, the girls inside know I crochet so I wonder if they'll spot it, and know it's me XD I got scared at first because I saw a cop right down the street, but after awhile he didn't seem to care. I did a horrible job of tying it up, but I didn't care I was too excited to do more. I only had this one planned out vaguely. I dressed mostly dark, so did my friend who I picked up along the way, and my roommate was my getaway car! Next time we'll dress warmer and bring cocoa after that, we went to a park and my friend did a bomb-fail lol and I managed to throw something together on some swings ^_^ and tagged it. I tagged almost everything with my name T.C. =] I think I will make bigger tags next time. But I was trying to force the viewers to take a closer look. =] We eventually saw a cop and so my friend stopped, but I had her pick up my yarn, and then I grabbed my camera and started to take pictures because I would be sad if it was taken down without a pic! We all slowly started walking towards the car, but realized if this cop cared enough he'd get out of his car. All he said was...Can I ask? I said..I'm sorry? : "Can I ask what you're doing?" in a very confused silly look on his face, I said "Oh it's for a class..."...What class. "My art class, my project is on Fiber art."...Fiber?..."yarn. you know fiber" ...Oh ok. I was just wondering because I saw you taking pictures. "Yup"..OKay have a good night. "Bye you too" went the convo. =] I was so relieved. I didn't imagine such carelessness.ONWARD. We drove to the college found a nice little bench; sat, crocheted, chatted and put a lil something together. The night was definitely unplanned. Next time will be better.XD We threw something together like a jacket for the bench, and then I did a lil diddy on a pole. a cop drove by without stopping, well two did. We also had a midnight jogger take a peek and just continue on his merry way ^_^ Overall I was content for an unplanned night! Thanks guys! Pictures will be up shortly. =)
