FALL in ‘Burque

Not a ton of time to blog these days. Many of the crew have found that this time of year gets filled up quick with:

other fiber projects

dance classes

performances

soup making

craft faires

& soooooo much more.

starting a project….

Hallo there in blog-space land….we were recently excited to see a link to our heart pattern page from the yarn-of-all-yarn…. mothership page.

Really, none of us know what the future holds…I like to think of our little patch of yarn-art in Albuquerque as a evolving movement within the bigger world of YB’ing. It has actually been kind of slow in growth…mainly due to the members extreme other hobbies that have taken over our lives. Yarn bombing (or fiber crime syndicate as my SO refers to it) for me is a way to pepper my little world around me with a little love. We have all taken the “heart” pattern around with us in our travels…..in fact I am compiling a little photo essay for this blog.

Perhaps by next week I will have some more to post for you to check out.

In the meantime we have our nearly weekly yarn happy hour and have started a “tree”….

A slice of NM sun and a new "project"...

While out and about throwing up our own little brand of urban art we have been noticing these lovely street scape enhancements here in the “Q”.

Who is this art caper?

TINK goes to Santa Fe

On a recent trip el norte…Tink just had to throw Santa Fe a little LOVE. Yarn. LOVE

YArN bOmBiNG! YeAH, ThiS iZ whut wE Do!

Keep it on the “DL”, but we just had to document this exploding craze!

(Picture above from a yarned up tree in Ohio)

The Fibe Squad is a group of fiber enthusiasts, dedicated to beautifying the Albuquerque urban landscape through Yarn Art! We have been inspired by our love of fiber arts, and feel the nearly compulsive urge to spread this obsession through underground urban development.Keep your eyes peeled for bombs unraveling all over town!

Join the movement and use your artistic capabilities to dress up dreary items of the city: knit up monster feet for a parking meter, crochet decorations for trees, or warm a cold statue with a wee scarf! Come all ye’ failed fiber swatches and sad attempts at sweaters–breath new life into these fiber pieces by using them for creative yarn graffiti! Did I just say that?

Be the movement. Get ‘burque all yarned up!
