Yarn Bombing Ballarat

June 11th saw the first ever International Yarn Bombing Day and Red Brick celebrated with style! Accompanied by our fave journo Margie from ABC Ballarat our crew cozied up the city! Hitting targets in the city center and Lake precinct we had a ball getting chilly Ballarat ready for winter.
The event clearly cought the local medias eye (either that or it was slooow news weekend!) as both the ABC interviewed me for the breakfast show with Dominic Brine and the local paper The Courier published a story on the event too.

I think I'm hooked (pardon the pun) and have been knitting and crocheting like a crazy gal with a mind to rug-up a whole tree!
There is a team currently working on creating a docco on the yarn bombing phenomenon, check out their promo below.
