If you're in New York City on Sunday, August 30th, drop by Union Square between 11am-4pm and add a small swatch of knitting or crochet to our mystery yarnbomb! We'll be there with world-famous yarnbomber London Kaye Crochet, who is delightful in the latest episode of Tea With Shira #5:

You can make your swatch before hand if you like -- our StitchFinder has some great knit and crochet patterns for small blocks, flowers and motifs -- OR you can knit or crochet a little something on the spot. We'll have lots of yarn, hooks and needles for you to take advantage of.

Some ideas from StitchFinder:

    I'm so disappointed that the yarn bomb is cancelled today. I will be in New York City with my daughter and we were totally ready to participate in the yarn bomb event. Hopefully, we will be able to make it on the new date. I'll watch my e-mails.
