wooly magic!

from this...

to this!

jennifer v.e. made this adorable beanie for a co-worker's new bambino. she was inspired to really go wild with the colors after taking a colorwork class with the heretical one. how about you? as in, what did you make with your wooly? email lucinda(at)wildwoolsyarn(dot)com or leave a comment here.

40 wooly hugs released for valentine's day

our last knit graffiti--the giant stocking and knitted wall--mysteriously disappeared shortly after we put them up. maybe we're hopelessly optimistic, but we thought: wouldn't it be nice if they had been taken by someone who actually needed a giant knitted object to stay warm?

and then we thought: why not make that the object of our next tagging? to create knitted objects specifically intended to be taken and used by someone in need. we decided valentine's would be the perfect time for our knitted "hugs." as it turns out, we couldn't have picked a better day to give away warm, wooly scarves. it hasn't been this cold and snowy in four years.

the best part came just after we finished hanging all 40 of the scarves along main street in rochester: seeing a homeless-looking guy take one down and stuff it in his pocket.

valentine's day: hug a wooly!

dozens of wild woolies in the form of blue sky bulky scarves will be released along main street, rochester, tomorrow morning. their mission: to give a much-needed valentine hug to chilly pedestrians as they trudge through the blizzard that's supposed to dump up to two feet of snow. just call us wild at heart.
