KnitaHug in Boscombe

Number four and five KnitaHug have gone up… and I am still footloose in the U.K.

This one went up at Honeycombe Beach between pole 208 and 209.

This one was fairly easy to attach while going unnoticed. I attached this on the windy side of the pier with hardly anyone passing by in broad daylight.

This is so much fun!

There are many wonderfully desserted places for attaching KnitaHugs around the Boscombe Bay area.

Just yesterday afternoon, I attached one to a bench with a hobo sleeping and snoring away on the other side of it.

The old couple seemed oblivious to my crocheting the KnitaHug onto the bench and the hobo on the other side did not wake either. Well, it was only 3 p.m.

I sat there, talking to my daughter, while crocheting this piece to the bench. Either the couple did not notice, thought it easier to ignore, or just found this to be the least of their problems.

Knit a Hug #2 was put up at Bournemouth Pier in full view of everyone. The pier was quite busy with people waiting for the land train which shuttles tourists back and forth between Bournemouth and Boscombe Bay.

Watched the land train conductor and his assistant inspect this little addition to the pole.

When we passed the pole this afternoon,  it was still hanging there.

Well, I did it! I put up my first knit graffiti in Boscombe Bay. Again, it was a lot of fun putting it up, especially once you learn to ignore the onlookers.

The pieces themselves are knitted, but each piece is attached by crocheting the ends together.

This one I put up right outside our vacation home. There is not much foot traffic, but it is still hanging there.

The label I use is Knit a Hug. So if you see my little works of knit graffiti, drop me a note.

True to the colors of the British flag, all pieces are done in red, white, and blue.
