I made a cozy for a parking meter at Main & Hastings this morning (you can see Carnegie Hall in the background of the first photo). As I sewed it a city truck parked beside me. I was a little nervous at first and then surprised when the city worker just got out, swept around me and proceeded to explain that he often gets asked what the strangest thing he's ever seen on the job is. Apparently this is it.
I checked on it a couple of hours later and it was still there, but with some additional contents compliments of the crow on the telephone wire. This is one blessed parking meter, it is all cozied up in hand-spun, hand-dyed, luck struck merino wool!
I have a feeling this will not be the last of yarn bombing for me....stay tuned
