Ha ha !  Chris and I just came back from a stroll among the shops and I saw my first yarn bomb!  For those of you who don't know what a "yarn bomb" is, it's a random piece of knit or crochet that covers something.  This particular yarn bomb was a bit of crochet around a pole.  The pole was part of a gate, and the yarn bomb covered the bottom.  It made the pole look like it had a claw foot.  So cool!  If you're unfamiliar with the results of yarn bombing, then check out this link to my search: yarn bomb.

We tried Moxie - the much maligned soda of Maine.  It was touted by our Duck Boat tour guide as a mix of "dirt and cough syrup".  Apparently us Buffalonians are more resillient - it tasted like thin root beer with a hint of anise.  Not bad.

I thought I would throw that out there - just saying.

P.S.  Here is a link to some other Maine Monster Foot Yarn Bombing. The pictures are from Freeport, Maine, where I was staying.  Maybe next year I will yarn bomb my own city.  :)  Thanks for the comment, Rose !  I never would have looked that up if you hadn't mentioned the holiday.


  1. Today is Monster foot madness day! A special yarn bombing day.
    So glad you saw one and enjoyed it.
    (they confuse some people)

  2. Wow! I didn't now that was the case! I just started to crochet last year, so I'm not very good at it yet, but I enjoy making blankets. Soon I want to take up knitting.
    My boyfriend actually turned me on to yarnbombing. He found some odd pictures of it online and showed me (he doesn't do any kind of crafts). I was overjoyed to see it in Maine, especially since we were on a trip anyway. Hopefully I can post a picture of it at some point - it was soo cute!
