Yesterday I was wondering if yarnbombing was legal in my area, so I called the campus cops. The lady there transferred me to someone else in the police department.
They transferred me somewhere else.
He transferred me to the head of the grounds department where I was able to receive permission to yarnbomb temporarily.
So I get to make my little doodads and put them under trees and along the Hello Walk as long as I pick them up after a few hours. So, at around 930 they’ll go down. Around noon, they will be picked up again.
I’ll attach business cards in case any curious students want something that I’ve put up.
I also got permission from the National Security Garden people on campus to yarnbomb their soy planter box. So there’s plans for that, too.
This little guy is the mushroom I made. However, I can’t sell the things I make from the pattern. Boo. So now that I know how to make a mushroom (big and little), I can make up my own pattern so I can sell the little guys if someone wants one.
So it was exciting to have a little boy so excited to have his very own Mario mushroom. He knew what it was! We had guest speakers for our class today and he was just sitting over there reading a book about Marvel Comics. So I asked his mom (one of the speakers) if I could give him the mushroom. She had no problems with it, so I did! And he loved it. Hooray!
She and her husband were the ones who gave me permission to make things to put amongst the soy plants there on campus. I have ideas for some things to put in there!
I’ve never written up my own pattern, so we’ll see how it turns out. I just have to count the stitches and stuff on my own and make sure I include the stitch count as well as the directions on how to do it.
Keep watching for a pattern or two!
