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
Chuggypig; I'm glad the rain delivered smiles!
Trekky: That's cool that you saw the knit wall when you were here
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
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
alwaysinmyroom: hehe The city has plenty of fun-loving spirits or, at least, people who are generally accepting of others' eccentricities
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
Belladune: Yes, a post-Olympics, less-frenetic Vancouver would be a fun place to revisit
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
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
DancingBoots: As a fellow Vancouverite, I'll make sure that the cats&dogs keep an eye out for you
Retro_Rose: Teehee to your hehe!
teachingjonah: I'm smiling that you're smiling, thanks!
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
AprilDraven: I hope more people share the idea of yarnbombing (and amigurumi-bombing) to brighten up more unexpected places
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!
amber555: Thanks for the Langley love, which is a beautiful city I associate with the annual Cranberry Festival and farm animal sightings
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?
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
Each crochet creation can feel like our lil crochet-children(?), so it's sometimes tricky to figure out our personal faves
Solarwen: I'm in often-rainy Coquitlam too
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!
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
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
thequenmel: Yes, the original yarnbombers sure started something fun
millik: hehe Thanks for sharing the link on your Facebook! I think this raindrop blog post must've been following your cyber trail
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
blackie.sage: The writers of "Frasier" also liked to promote the similarly-rainy reputation of Seattle to your Minnesotan friends, didn't they?
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!
elirhiannon: Texas? Three words: Amigurumi Cacti Bombing!
spotnik: hehe David Duchovny was saying those things as part of a skit on Conan, so it was all in good fun
I remember Vancouver being in a resulting fit of rage though! Happy 40th
TMommy: Another Vancouverite, wow
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!
