Yay! It is time for another group yarn bomb, just in time for Thanksgiving. I really hope you can participate! I am continuing the tradition of the #SheepishHeartBomb and #SheepishBloomDrop by combining the art of yarn bombing with a random act of kindness.
The theme for the week of Thanksgiving is #SheepishThanks! While you are prepping food for the big meal, spending time with relatives, and reflecting on the year, take a few minutes to stitch together a leaf, pumpkin, acorn, something fall-related, or anything your heart desires, stealthily hang it up somewhere, attach a note with #SheepishThanks, and leave it for someone to find. Think of it as the yarn version of a thank you note!
Hang something outside of one of your favorite, local shops. Make a few knit leaves for your neighbor’s mailbox. Get creative and show someone how thankful you are that they are in your life. It might seem like a small gesture, but a handmade creation shows thought, care, love, and thankfulness. Handmade is never small.
I am so excited to see your creations! I made the knit leaves in the photos above using this pattern from Ravelry. You can also crochet leaves using my pattern here. Are you going to stick with the fall theme or try something else entirely? Please share your progress photos on Instagram and Twitter with the hashtag #SheepishThanks. Share your photos on my Facebook page, too.
The #SheepishThanks group yarn bomb will start on the day before Thanksgiving, November 27, run through the weekend, and end on December 1. I will post a round-up of your creations here on the blog next week. Are you in??
I am most definitely thankful for each and every single one of you. Thank you for reading and sharing my love of yarn.
