Say yeah, I predict a yarnbomb up in here. ‘Cause we throw poms on it… KWA at Sand, Sea and Spray 2012

Knittaz with Attitude was out in force this weekend at Blackpool’s own annual urban art festival Sand, Sea and Spray.  It’s organised by the lovely Robin Ross and brings lots of talented artists into Blackpool to brighten up the town and share their creations with local people.

We decided to support the festival as only we know how, with a shed-load of wool!  We decided to focus on St John’s Precinct and Cedar Square and had a stash of lovely knitting, crochet and pom-poms to display.

Yarnbombing highlights were our woolly bike, which attracted a ridiculous amount of attention and the pom-poms (pombombing!) and crocheted birds in the trees.  Passers-by gave us so many compliments and took so many photos that we feel famous!

I’ll stop waffling now and get to the good bit, the photos…

Ooh, we need to give a massive thank you to Foundry who shinned up a macca ladder to help us pombomb.  You sir, are a legend *doffscap*

Aunty, Aunty, where are you?

Here I am!  Here I am!  How do you do?

It’s been a while since the last post, but we have been ever so busy with planning activities for this month and beyond.  Over the Bank Holiday weekend, we painted a gazillion faces and helped nippers make lots of pretty bracelets and necklaces at YOMOFO ‘Alfresco’ at Stanley Park Cricket Club.  Despite the yucky weather, it was a grand day out, with plenty of activities, brill music and smiling faces.

So, this is where we will be in June:

Watch out for other crafty activities in between!
