Harvest The Arts Yarn Bomb, Southington, CT

So while this post is very late I wanted to be sure to record and make note of all the hard work that went into creating the Harvest The Arts Yarn Bomb!

Several weeks and many yarn bombers went into the making of this wonderful block long installation in Southington, CT as part of the yearly Apple Harvest Festival.

Even weeks later our fabulous pieces were still wrapping trees, light posts, benches and trash cans. I got to enjoy many interactions between our pieces and the public from hearing someone calling it a "tree sweater" to a man telling me that he took a piece down and it was on its way to his daughter in Michigan. As I was out for a run one afternoon I even witnessed the final surviving yarn bomb being ripped off a tree by a teenager who draped it over the head of his friend while walking by. Good times!

So thank you to all my HookL8eZ who helped out in so many ways. It couldn't have been done without you!
