    The video features so much smile-inducing fun! 🙂 I apologize for my two fellow Vancouverites not knowing about yarn bombing, for shame 😀

      Fabulous to hear from you. We love your crochet marvels.

      We’re glad we inspired your fellow Vancouverites to bring it home with them. Maybe they’ll keep an eye out and get a nice surprise. 🙂
