Yarn Bomb

I take a multiverse of pride in watching my “Yarn Bomb” creations be stolen. This sculpture was of a Cheshire-esc cat. The sweater making up the body was stolen. The amazing hat I had created for it’s head was stollen, the smile, the limbs, end of the tail … and all prior to our Yarn Bombing Photographer had a chance to document it. By the end of the exhibition the tail and the guts were gone too. This Yarn bomb project was the easiest de-install of my life. There was literally nothing left behind to take down. The way I see it. If it didn’t get jacked, I didn’t do a good job creating it. I’m hoping that it all went to different homes! I hope the hat is keeping someone’s head cozy and the sweater is creating a comfy atmosphere for someone else. I hope the ears, smile, limbs, the three different parts of the tail and all the guts have all been repurposed in people’s lives. I still have some of the weaves that were used on the hoop Cheshire-esc cat!
