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 google.com 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.
