project seal yarn bomb: meet Frank!

Hi everyone!

Last Monday was S-Day for me: seal day, the day that I got to yarn bomb the seal statue! :)

My good friend Christina and I drove all the way out to Pieterburen during a very windy day, and set up our stuff: one bag filled with different sized squares, cushions to sit on, needles and hooks, and ofcourse more yarn.

This was my first yarn bomb ever, can you believe it? I had no idea how to go about it, but with a little luck and some hard work we got there in the end! And ofcourse much much thanks to our fabulous sponsor, Scheepjeswol, for providing us with the yarn!

Everyone, meet Frank; Frank, meet everyone! :)

We had so much fun doing this! Despite the hard wind and the occasional rain (and the fact that our backs are pretty much broken from sitting on the ground all day), it was a blast! It was really cool seeing all the other seals that had already been beautified, too.

In a couple of weeks all the seals will be finished, and shown to the public on a special day. I’ll share pics of that day, of course. We even get to release some seals back into the sea that day, how cool is that! :)
