There is still a whole lot of red yarn left, but I needed a change of pace. The next group would be predominantly blue. Meet Bears 368, 369, 370, 371, 372.
Then I went with a three color scheme that included pink, yellow, and orange for Bears 373, 374, 375, 376, and 377.
By then I had gotten a bit tired of limiting colors and wanted to try something different. Checking out google images I came across an advertisement that said "Adidas Redesign 2013." Sometimes my ideas come from a quick glimpse of a photo. Often I don’t know if it will work for a Bear. Then I print out the picture, stare at it, squint at it, begin to knit, have lunch with partial Bear and design, and maybe, just maybe, it will work. Such was the case with Bear 378. At first I was excited over starting him. But then I had to give him a rest for a few hours. Do I want to make a group of basketball players? Hmmmm……….
Another thought quickly attached itself to the ballplayer idea. What about a basketball hoop?
Oh well, I had to yarn-bomb some PVC pipes to get there, but the idea stuck.
But the boy looked a bit underdressed. He needed a baseball cap. Yes, I know, I am mixing sports. Boys will be boys.
I am working on boy number two now. A while ago I had lunch with him. He suggested a playground.
Soon I will be on my way to Home Depot to find a slide. You haven't yarn-bombed until you have yarn-bombed a slide on a playground.
