Knitting to Heal - Yarn Bombing - My Tree

So as I expressed in my last post, I spend the summer working in a sweater for "My Tree"... My tree was sponsored by my loved Yarn Shop, and since I spend so much time there learning and teaching and building stories and friendships, I thought the least I could do was to make the sweater that would represent the shop's sponsorship.

It all started with a bunch of blue yarn and experimenting with free form and I had share it with you here and here. I then added all kind of fun "corals", sea creatures, glow in the dark beads and even a felted Nemo (it is super fun to see little kids looking all the way around to find Nemo)... I had a couple of girls (age 13 and 16) help me with the fishes and sea creatures. And a dear friend made the A.M.A.Z.I.N.G Sunset/Sunrise!!!!!! it's the perfect complement for my sea bed piece. We are so happy inhow it came out.

Finally, a couple of weeks ago, on Oct 4th, we installed my tree... I'll leave you with a bunch of pretty photos.
I'm so proud!


See you soon,
