I'm a Rebel
Today I went out on a not-so-secret mission with the South End Knitters. Our mission was to put tags on the rings at the Southwest Corridor park in the South End of Boston.
The tags came out beautiful! This one is mine:
I like the way those flowers came out. The first pattern I tried was for a Narcissus, and something went tragically wrong there and the color yarn I chose may be part of it:
Doesn't that look more like the sort of flower one would find in, say, a lady garden?
Here are the other tags:
Overlooking all of these tags is a guardian gargoyle:
This wasn't my first brush with the nefarious underworld of knit tagging. Two years ago, Mike and I helped put up the tag outside the Animal Rescue League. I was fairly new to the group at the time, and hadn't contributed to the tag itself, but was thrilled to help put it up. We also gave the ARL a big donation on behalf of the group.
I've thought about doing some tagging on my own, but haven't found any spots that need it (besides the hook on our front door). Oh, and don't despair - the tags do get taken down after a while (the rings get taken down seasonally) and get washed and put away. Sometimes pieces of the tags "disappear", and I hope whoever took them gives them a happy home.
