1 Start close to home. Look at every pole and rack near by and imagine them covered with knitting. A lot of what is fun about making art is day dreaming and picturing what you want to do.
2. Also- starting close to home will let you keep an eye on your work. You will want to run out the door every morning to see how it looks. And if it is still there.
3. Measure your pole or rack. Actually -start carrying a measuring tape at all times .
You never know when you might want to measure something.
4.Knit the work so it will fit tightly.I have been plagued by saggy yarnbombs.
5.Decide if you want to sneak around by yourself or sneak in a group. Are you yarnbomber type A-The Single Sneaker or Y arnbomber type B- A Group Sneaker.
6.Buy a little pair of scissors and a tapestry needle to sew your pieces onto poles.
No-buy 25 tapestry needles because they will disappear as fast as you can unwrap them.
7.Get your hands on a digital camera and take lots and lots of pictures. You might not get to see that piece again.
10.Make it beautiful. You are in everyone’s space-it’s only polite.
And remember -you never know if this is legal or not. Start discretely and work your way up.
It’s fun , isn’t it.
