A selection of rings from the crochet class at the Braille Institute for the Visually Impaired in Los Angeles, CA.
I made these with Paracord and the ring is by Mix and Mingle beads and charms. This is a new little project I am doing. Since I am single- I decided to wear a ring- it may be small but it is making me happy!!
Another ring in my Culver City neighborhood! It’s on the first California poppy to bloom in my ‘water-wise’ front garden in spring 2014. In this case, the yarn bomb preceded the poppy, as it had been the prototype of my current ring series: acrylic yarn crocheted in a straight piece and sewn onto a circle of up-cycled coat-hanger wire (bent into shape by my husband). The ‘jewel’ is embroidered with a sparkly, light-weight plastic cord.
http://littlefreelibrary.org/ for info. I love the idea of sharing books with neighbors in this way. It’s sort of like yarnbombing, but with books instead of fiber art pieces being placed decoratively where you least expect to find them.
I wish for peace in Ukraine.
Put A Ring On…” is the latest community installation of YARN BOMBING L.A., a guerrilla movement of yarn crafters who bring their art into the community. Putting a ring symbolically and literally on anything treasured, I chose MEL as my special community place because I have been patronizing it with my family ever since I moved into the neighborhood of Sunset Plaza.
Yarn Bombers in Madison, Wisconsin tied scarves and hats to trees for people who might need them for the 18 degree weather. One of the scarves was tied up with wire to create a ring that could be taken apart for warmth. Says Yarn Bomber Ellen – ‘Now I know why National Yarn Bombing occurs in June’! Ellen lives in the LA area and her sister, who came up with the idea, is founder of Millie’s Hats for Hope Initiative in Dearborn Michigan.
