Knitting Cherry Blossoms for Awareness

For those of you who are avid knitters and love stories, here’s an event for you.   A local knitting group in Vancouver — the Yarn Bombers — are raising awareness for the Joy Kogawa Historic House by knitting cherry blossoms to cover the cherry tree in the yard of the house.   For more information, check out their post on the event.  PaperTigers has also covered Joy’s childrens’ books on the newly revamped PaperTiger’s main website, as well as having an interview with her.

    Love this idea – reminds me a little of guerilla knitters who cover lamp posts and telephone boxes with knitted creations. There are some great photos here:
