For the past several weeks I’ve been involved in a program with the Saint Paul Cozy community of artists. Quoting from our Facebook Group page:
Saint Paul Cozy is a community-sourced, yarn-bombing project that aims to bring color and cheer to Downtown St. Paul. The project involves wrapping 158 city lampposts in hand-made cozies. The cozies will be installed along 4th Street from Rice Park to CHS prior to the 2018 St. Paul Winter Carnival.
The project is led by the Rage to Order Artists Initiative of Lowertown, with support from the the St. Paul Saints Art Program.
Exhibit Dates: Jan 25 – March 4, 2018
Scope: 12 city blocks, 158 Lampposts
Location: Downtown St. Paul on 4th Street from CHS Field to Rice Park.
This is a picture of one of my cozy panels I made, as it hangs on it’s light pole. lol The twitter link is from a Saint Paul Pioneer Press article and tweet. I haven’t done anything this fun in a long time and wanted to share.
I also made a second cozy, comprized of 6″ granny squares I had laying around. I was surprised it took me a day and a half to put them together, but again, was a lot of fun. lol
The free pattern for the ice castle can be found on Ravelry. It’s called “Sandcastle Kawaii Cuddler.” She has some wonderful patterns so I’m sure this won’t be the last pattern of hers that I make.
