Color is a plastic means of creating intervals… color harmonics produced by special relationships, or tensions. We differentiate now between formal tensions and color tensions, just as we differentiate in music between counterpoint and harmony.

Thing #16: Fail or Yarn BOMB

My first real attempt at yarn bombing, um, bombed.  It was poor planning on my part.  I chose the wrong day, the wrong time.  Ah well, live, learn, try again…  😉

I did get a photo before the nice security boys told me I couldn’t leave my “art” on the sculpture.

I guess I’m not very good at “covert.”

On a positive note, I think I got my over-ambitious yarn-bombing desire out of my system.  The next effort will not be as time-consuming. And, hopefully, I can get back on track with the rest of my 100 Things.


The cats seem to like the bombed yarn remains (what does a girl do with a knitted and crocheted umbrella cover???).

    Too bad the security guards “made you”. Perhaps using “covert” TV FBI talk will make us more sneaky next time…
