Inventory for the DC-3 Yarn Bomb

My yarn covered apartment

We spent last weekend washing and counting our knitted and crochet inventory for the Knitting for History yarn bombing.  Why? Well all the knitted and crochet blankets need to be washed to ensure that the yarn dyes won’t bleed onto the DC-3. It was a lot of work but a lot of fun too.

After all the washing was a lot of counting and configuring odd sizes into 4×6 feet blankets,  based on our pattern – I”m so thrilled to announce that we have 37 of 74 blankets!  We are half way there!

We are still asking people to participate by knitting or crocheting in acrylic yarn to be added to the yarn bomb or do to donate any unwanted knitted or crochet acrylic blankets.  All blankets will be donated to local charities.
