If you aren't already a major Kristin Nicholas fan like I am, then one glance at this photo, of her yarnbombed sunflower field, should do it: photo by Kristin Nicholas
Head straight over to her blog and look at some of the other photos from this bit of whimsy. While you're there, enter to win a copy of Craft Activism. (which you can see, from that link, is on Amazon's list of Best Books of 2011. Seriously!)
One of the huge perks of having the book come out has been meeting people I admire while we promote it. I had the best time yapping away with Kristin and her daughter Julia at Webs in Northampton MA. She makes me want to try all kinds of colorful combinations of knitting, stitching andrejoicing in the juiciness of textiles. Go look at these patterns and tell me you don't feel the same way?
