Kia Kaha Christchurch

Mista Slip Stitch and myself have been back from our big trip for nearly 2 months now.
Time just flew and life has been busy so we have not tackled another project yet.
However, there will be a big Art & Craft Fair in Tauranga's CBD on Saturday March 19th and we're hoping to finish a little tag for that day.

In the meantime however we're still in a state of shock about the earthquake disaster down in Christchurch.
It is so, so incredibly sad and very difficult to comprehend what happened. To have lost not only the majority of beautiful historic buildings that gave Christchurch its character but the loss of all those lives is just tragic.
It will also most definitely have a huge impact on the whole of New Zealand.
But despite the sadness and the tragedy of this it shows that New Zealanders stick together and help where they can.
So our thought's go out to everyone who's been affected by this earthquake.
Kia Kaha Christchurch!

From Cold Cologne to (almost) tropical Tauranga

Here are a couple more pics a friend took of our little tag we did in Cologne at Alter Markt.
(Thank you Willi for taking these. They are great!)  I still can't believe how cold it was that day....

and now, two weeks back into almost tropical conditions in Tauranga (very warm and lot's of rain) our first action of the year as the Craft Bomber Association was to take a tag down instead of putting one up. Remember the tree cosies we put up in September (one of which was nicked)?  I'm not sure if this is knit taggers protocol but we decided to take it down as it had gone soggy from all the rain and started curling down. It really didn't look nice anymore.
But don't think this is a sign of giving up. Quite the opposite we're back on track. After our little holiday tagging trail we're keen to do something bigger again. So stay tuned in to find out about our next project.

As always

Moin Moin Norden, Kölle Alaaf and Münster Olé

Kia Ora and welcome to 2011!!
Mista Slip Stitch and I have landed back in Kiwi land over the weekend and were thrown straight back into the normality of daily work on Monday morning. A little spaced out after a marathon journey of nearly 40hrs, the shock of  temperature change of nearly 30 degrees Celsius and not to mention the shock of having to work after 7 weeks of sweet nothing, it took a few days to settle in and get back to 'normal'.
But we don't want to keep you waiting any longer. Now with a slight delay (apologies to all) we'll show you our little tagging action while in Germany. We did three tags at different locations.

No.1 was another wintry tag as a New Years greeting to the town of Norden in East Frisia at the North Sea coast.

another possible tagging location in Norden?
So we say Moin Norden and have a wonderful 2011!

Tag No.2 was put up on a day tip to Cologne/Köln (or Kölle in local dialect). It was such a nice day but it was absolutely freezing. So we went from art gallery to pub to shop to pub to shop to pub.... you get the picture. Finally before we had to catch the train back we found a suitable lamppost and left our little tag behind. It actually took me a while to thread the needle because my hands where shaking so much from the cold. So here it is.

So Kölle Alaaf and all the best for 2011!

And finally tag No.3 in the town of Münster in Westphalia. A little pushed for time to finish it and running out of wool we managed to put this tag up the day we caught the plane back to NZ.
We aimed for a bigger size initially but were quite happy with it in the end. It was just a shame that it was raining so much on that day. It would've been lovely on a sunny winter's day but there you go. Sometimes you don't have a choice.

Well, isn't this a red flag for any yarn bomber?

And right in front of a police station. Oh my.     

How's that for a red flag?

some early interest

So, Münster Olé and we wish all a blessed 2011!!

So that's our three little tags in Germany. We had bigger plans to start with but in the end spending time with friends and family was a definite priority over tagging. But we're very pleased to have left a little yarn trail on our journey. And we had a fabulous time. White Christmas, snowman building, sledging, snowball fights, open fire, mulled wine, trifle, ginger bread, candles everywhere. Bliss.

Now we're back in the heat of New Zealand's summer and getting ready for more tagging around town. So stay tuned and have an amazing New Year!!

warm and woolly regards from your CBA

PS here's the proof that Mista Slip Stitch is not only the escape driver :-)

Happy New Year

Just a quick Happy happy New Year to everyone!!!
Mista Slip Stitch and myself have been stuck in extreme winterly conditions with no internet access. This didn't stop us from leaving a few tags behind which I'll upload hopefully soon.

For now all the best wishes to all knitters, taggers, followers, watchers and everybody else!

HAPPY 2011!!!!

warm and woolly regards, Missy Rogue Knitta
