Beverly's craft store on Balboa will be hosting a few stop sign knitting gatherings!
If you want to help knit some leaves and stems, come by!
They will be:
* Wednesday, October 5th from 6-8pm
* Thursday, October 13th from 6-8pm
* Thursday, October 27th from 6-8pm
If you have size 35 needles, bring them!
The yarn is finally here!
Thank you to Peggy and the crew at Beverly's for their extra efforts towards the end. It could have taken even longer!
We will be hosting a knitting gathering at Beverly's craft store on Balboa sometime next week. I will post the details once I know them.
The kickstarter funding period expires in 24 hours!
We are almost there, at 75%. Less than $300 left! If just five people in Clairemont sponsor their own pole we will make it!
What a neat present for your neighboorhood!
Sponsor a random pole! Only $15 (anonymous unless you request otherwise)
We can make it happen!
I started a kickstarter project to create flowers all over Clairemont
The funding period ends August 5th -- the clock is ticking. Please spread the link around, and consider helping sponsor the project.
If we can get the funding for the material, the community will be transformed!
If you are in San Diego, and would like to help as a knitter or installer, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
And send http://tinyurl.com/stopsigns to your friends!

Wow, they just keep popping up! One more found in the wild!
This one uses a different, varigated, yarn that accentuates the veins in the leaves. I don't think you can quite see that in this picture. I will try and get a detailed picture of a leaf.
It didn't take very long to knit up the second stop sign conversion kit, and I think I have the leaf pattern committed to memory.
The leaves are attached a little bit differently than last time, but still not in the best way.
I am going to try another method if there are additional flowers. Once I have it figured out I will post detailed instructions so you can easily make your own!
Here are some pictures:
A few months ago I saw a picture of street artist Mark Jenkins' stop sign flower in Washington D.C. I liked the way it looked and wanted to do something similar myself.
Then I saw the Wall St. Bull covered in yarn and learned about yarnbombing.
So, I combined the two!
I found a good leaf pattern, got some yarn, and started knitting my own Mark Jenkins inspired yarnbomb.
