Winged_Soul: hehe Yes, it would be fun it dancing-in-the-rain was a common sight!

Wayuki: Ah yes, we are soggy twin-cities! No one has taken the raindrops home yet, though a well-timed jump (or a ladder) would make that uncomfortably possible Wink

Chuggypig; I'm glad the rain delivered smiles!

Trekky: That's cool that you saw the knit wall when you were here Smiley It's a little worn now but still well-loved in the community, it seems. I hope you do some dancing in the Glasgow rainstorms Wink

ninjanator: Yes, we're sharing in the Olympic fever over here, along with a smidgen of anxiety. It feels like our province has planned a giant house party and we're not totally sure if our house can accommodate all the guests!

wawamommy: Even though you're in Vancouver, I'm happy that these raindrops could bring you cheer! Downtown Vancouver is about 30min away from where I live, but I'll be making some weekly visits to see how the cats&dogs are holding-up Smiley

alwaysinmyroom: hehe The city has plenty of fun-loving spirits or, at least, people who are generally accepting of others' eccentricities Cheesy I hope you crochet some snowdrops where you are!

Handmadekitty: Figure skating is a beautiful sport, I agree. I get so nervous when they jump though! I'll keep an eye on Jess, Nancy, Pixel and Sammi for you!

Rajawa: It would be super if these raindrops continues adding some cheer in the community! I'll be visiting downtown this week to observe some reactions Smiley

Belladune: Yes, a post-Olympics, less-frenetic Vancouver would be a fun place to revisit Smiley I'll leave the cats&dogs up there for as long as possible!

kjlutz: I'm glad you like the drops and the pix! My gf took half the pix--the ones with my silly poses--and she appreciates your nice sentiments too Smiley

seamlessgem: hehe You must be an awesome sight in your orange rain coat! We both know that it's fun to wear bright colours on soggy blue days Cheesy

DancingBoots: As a fellow Vancouverite, I'll make sure that the cats&dogs keep an eye out for you Cheesy

Retro_Rose: Teehee to your hehe!

teachingjonah: I'm smiling that you're smiling, thanks! Cheesy

Angry Angel: I'm following the superior lead of talented local yarn-bombers here and in the UK (like Deadlyknitshade and the Knit the City group)! It's such a joy to have seen some happy reactions passing this local garden Smiley

AprilDraven: I hope more people share the idea of yarnbombing (and amigurumi-bombing) to brighten up more unexpected places Smiley

RavingRosemary: Thanks! After holding on tightly to all I made, it was a new experience to make something to be set free. But after seeing the happy reactions in person and on-line, I finally understand the joy of letting go in that way! Smiley

amber555: Thanks for the Langley love, which is a beautiful city I associate with the annual Cranberry Festival and farm animal sightings Smiley

Onyxnox: If you were a visitor to Vancouver, It would be fun to imagine you taking snapshots of the raindrops! Would your two dogs get envious? Smiley Yes, it's been fun learning to crochet for the past 1.5 years, with many more to go!

Ruby Copperhead: I'm glad the raindrops made your fave list Wink Each crochet creation can feel like our lil crochet-children(?), so it's sometimes tricky to figure out our personal faves Cheesy

Solarwen: I'm in often-rainy Coquitlam too Cheesy We're a part of the Greater Vancouver Regional District, so that qualifies us as Vancouverites, right? Coquitlamites? As you must know, the Olympic Torch will be passing our city on Feb11!

Tygermane: With the bustling art scene in Oregon, I'm sure your own yarnbombing wishes will eventually make an appearance, if not by others than by you! Wink

mudpuddles: If your mom doesn't mind crazy traffic into Vancouver, it would be wonderful to imagine you both visiting the cat&dog raindrops! By the way, Yarnbombing.com is a good Canadian site for more about yarn bombing!

humboldtcherry: The raindrops appreciate the love and smiley faces Cheesy

ConnieStieler: Thanks! I'm headed downtown with everyone to perform roll-call on the raindrops tomorrow. Yes, I'm also excited for Friday's opening ceremonies! No CGI sky-footprints for us, at least Wink

thequenmel: Yes, the original yarnbombers sure started something fun Smiley

millik: hehe Thanks for sharing the link on your Facebook! I think this raindrop blog post must've been following your cyber trail Smiley This is my first public yarn art, and I can understand why it can be addicting!

Burningrubber: I'm glad you like the video! My gf captured some great shots during that hour of stringin' up time!

sabrinalouisemiller: Thanks! If you were still in Victoria, I hope these yarn raindrops would have made the rollicking ferry-trip to Vancouver a little more worthwhile Cheesy

blackie.sage: The writers of "Frasier" also liked to promote the similarly-rainy reputation of Seattle to your Minnesotan friends, didn't they? Smiley

sgriffen: I didn't follow patterns, but I did borrow my niece's encyclopedia of dog species.  It's amazing how varied-in-appearance dogs can be, as you know. Continued good wishes to your kind-hearted crochet group! Smiley

elirhiannon: Texas? Three words: Amigurumi Cacti Bombing! Wink

Grave_13: Merci Smiley

spotnik: hehe David Duchovny was saying those things as part of a skit on Conan, so it was all in good fun Smiley I remember Vancouver being in a resulting fit of rage though! Happy 40th Smiley

TMommy: Another Vancouverite, wow Cheesy Each complete raindrop-with-cat/dog-head took about 4 hours to make, so selling plenty of them would be a lengthy challenge haha

iota1617: merci again!

crazycandy999: I was just in beautiful Chilliwack a few months ago, visiting the airport and its famous pies! Wow, Craftster is far more local than I realized! Cheesy

I always loved how you reply to EVERY reply! Even the tiniest of "hehe's" Smiley

If you get famous, fans will love you all the more for loving them. So now you know the only thing that is left for you to do.

Start a band.

You know, I have family in Victoria and Vancouver that I still visit whenever I can - so on my next ferry ride I'll go to the garden and give the raindrops a visit!

Since someone took time to write a comment, I think it's more than fair for me to take the time to reply Cheesy At least, as much as possible without missing all my deadlines haha
Yes, I shall start a band. It will be called: "Howie and the Woos"
haha

I will ask that the rain gods protect the Cat&Dog Raindrops till you visit! Thanks! Smiley

Wow, that is fantastic to hear! Thanks for marching through the crowds to say hi to the Cat&Dog Raindrops! They can sense fellow crafty people, so you may have heard a "ruff" or a "mew" when you were there? Smiley I haven't ventured downtown through the mass crowds yet, so it's wonderful to hear that they're being well-received at their garden home! Smiley

Funny, if you're from Vancouver we know to expect 10 months of rain every year - and two months of insane beauty.
I love your cats and dogs, you have to let me know if you make and sell these.......I'm only a hop skip and a jump again in Abbotsford =o)
