Counterfeit Crochet "crochet-in" this week in Honolulu

Posted on by MK Carroll

As part of the Find Art Festival, Stephanie Syjuco is holding "crochet-ins" at the Pegge Hopper Gallery in downtown Honolulu. The Counterfeit Crochet Project is an excellent example of craftivism, and ArchiPURLago and I (along with at least a few other Aloha Knitters) are planning to be at the Friday 5:00 - 8:00 PM crochet-in. I'm also hoping to make it over to the panel discussion on Thursday (5:00 - 6:30 PM, The ARTS at Marks Garage) after the sit-and-knit session at The Honolulu Museum of Arts Spalding House (2:00 - 4:00 PM). 

I've been looking at various handbags, and this one from the Tory Burch collection for Resort 2013 caught my eye:

Ever wonder what to do with a swatch?

Bike rack yarnbomb

I knit this during the planning phase of the Spalding House yarnbombing and was going to unravel it to make some yarnbombs with - and then realized it would make a perfectly good yarnbomb as is! It was a little too long, so I picked out a row and bound it off to make a perfect fit.

QR coded yarnbomb

The yarnbomb has been tagged with a QR code that goes to theFUZZhawaii.blogspot.com (it's also written out on the back of the tag for those who don't want to use a smartphone app).
