Yarn Bombing a Foot Stool

Posted on March 26, 2014 at 11:20 AM Comments comments (2)

   I never know what to knit this time of year.  After all, hand-knits aren't too popular during the summer months.  I wouldn't want a scarf wrapped around my neck when it's ninety degrees outside.  It's also a little early to be working on items for next winter (not that this one is over with yet!).

   I have an ugly, vinyl, $1 at an auction foot stool in the TV room.  This is the room that I'm sent to when I want to watch Dancing With the Stars or Grey's Anatomy.  I've decided that I'm going to Yarn Bomb it.

   What is Yarn Bombing you say?  It's when you completely or nearly cover an item with knitting.  I have some great examples of this on my Pinterest board "Knit One & Knit Some More" found here:

   Everything from fire hydrants, to bike racks, to chairs. 

   It will be the perfect opportunity for me to use some of the knitting patterns that I've also collected - great cables, domino knitting, and beautiful laces, some of which could be quite a challenge.  Plus, I'll be able to use THE STASH.  It's gotten a bit out of hand lately.  ;)

   So, here's the before picture . . .




         I'll let you know how it goes . . .


***** Update - 3/24/2015.  So far, I've only finished the top section.  Need to get back to knitting on this one . . . .
