LR4: Yarn Bummed

3 weeks to goI hiked up to the target site yesterday to see how far along I am and how much more work is required to pull this off. It’s been a long time since I felt that dejected.

All I could think on the way back down was how badly I will feel if I let down all those who have put their faith in me and worked so hard to contribute to the yarn bomb. I’m worried that I’ve gotten in over my head and that June 8th will mark an incredibly humiliating moment for me and a disappointing moment for those who chose to help me.

Anyway, I still have almost 3 full weeks to knit my fingers to the bone. As for the previously stated May 25th deadline for sending me swatches, forget it! I’ll take whatever I can get right up until I leave the trailhead.

EVERY knitted/crocheted swatch is very much appreciated! Please send them to 1482 East Valley Road, #716, Santa Barbara, CA 93108.

Thank you!!!!

  1. Mine will not be the largest or the best quality work, but it will be in the mail this week. So excited to participate. Remember, your goal is already reached. You have learned to knit. If the tree isn’t entirely covered, who cares?! It will still be an amazing thing to experience. As far as your bodily fluids and hair being turned down for donation, that I can’t help you get over!

    • Hi! Another box leaves Pittsburgh today……….I just dropped it at the post office. They are saying you should get it Saturday. I can’t wait to see the pictures of the finished project! No matter how much more you think you could have done…….hats off for your accomplishements! You have not only learned to knit, you are ‘bombing’ a tree ( A TREE! that’s huge!) , providing blankets where they are needed, and you have joined a group of total strangers on a project together! You should be proud! Thanks for letting us be a part of this!

      • You are awesome Cathy! With all this support, I’m starting to believe WE just may pull this off after all.

  2. PHEW!!! Glad the deadline has been extended! I’m sending my smallish batch on Monday. Keep in mind that I’ve been knitting and crocheting since March of this year, so my little contribution might help tie up loose ends or spaces 🙂 CAN’T WAIT TO SEE THIS!!!!!!!
