Long time no see, I’ve gotten buried under papers about ecological and feminist economics! Yay!
But in more exciting and crafty news, the week before last Nanatech in Wellington held our very first “Learn to Guerila Knit” workshop!
A fun time was had by all and everyone came away with a wee flower to place somewhere around town. Guerila knitting has erupted onto the world scene in the last few years with all sorts of blogs and websites popping up devoted to sharing images of knitting that beautfies the urban landscape. Hopefully our colourful flowers around Wellington will help brighten up the greyness of winter and help get us through to spring!
Our inspiration came from a similar project in Christchurch that was carried out last year in the Cathedral Square. Check it out here.
Here are some of the ones I made up for the workshop:
If you’re looking at making your own crochet flowers for guerila purposes or not I’d highly recommend their pattern which is located here.
Pics of the flowers around and about will be coming soon
