Yarnbombing: Fugly as I wanna be!

Some of the reasons that Yarnbombing is so cool:
-you can "be productive" and get something done and up and have that feeling of accomplishment
-you can adorn the (urban) landscape with your craftiness and entertain yourself while you're at it
-you can use up pieces of that nasty old stash of yarn that has been kicking around forever

This piece is something that I've had finished for ages but have considered it to be completely FUGLY in every sense of the word.
I never liked that pink yarn, and even though it's a nice brand, "Philosopher's Wool", it has always really turned me off colourwise.
Plus, I have gobs and gobs of the stuff still leftover.

So I decided to get it done and get it up.
Then I stashed it away for several months. Then I just decided to get it up and not worry about it anymore.
I hope that someone enjoys the work. I'm over it.

If you're interested in checking out the Yarnbombing ladies, they'll be at Word on the Street tomorrow at 1:00 pm. Head down to Library Square to say hello. Maybe I'll be there too.
