‘Support Libraries’ in two languages

Yarn Bombing at Your Library, my library-advocacy project, is off to a good start in 2013. This weekend, I applied my first tag of the new year: “Support Libraries” at the Harriet Lee Hammond Library in Upper Lake, Calif.

I also crocheted a yarnstorming tag for an emissary in Israel. Anat Kolumbus provided the English-to-Hebrew translation and assistance with the letterforms, which I incorporated in a freehand crocheted message tag. I allowed myself the luxury of a seven-stitch letter height instead of the five that I usually use when crocheting letterforms. In keeping with the air of mystery that yarn-stormers often cultivate, I donned my loom-knit balaclava for this work-in-progress photograph.

  1. Yarn Bombing at Your International Library! Maybe in a couple of years we'll be able to go see the library that's going to house your tag.
