Meredith form One Sheepish Girl is hosting another yarn bombing day for Valentines. This one is heart themed, called Sheepish Heart Bomb! I knew i had to take part, and i knew just what i wanted to do as before i had finished reading the post.
As i am living the dream life, in the land of ski. I knew that i had to yarn bomb a ski lift. I yarn bombed, the Le Crozat, ski lift in Chamonix/Les Houches.
This is my first time yarn bombing, and i was very nervous I did not tell my friend (pictured in the red jacket) what i was planning, until just before. Being a none knitter and never hearing about yarn bombing, she did not understand. It came a bit of a shock to her when i whipped out my hearts and started tying them to the cross bar of the ski lift. She had a good laugh though, mostly at my expense.
The hearts looked so good. I as today is valentines day, i now have a image in my head of a loved up couple getting on the Heart Chair, and holding hands as they ascend the side of Mont-Blanc. I really hope its appreciated.
We did a return run down a different piste to the same ski lift and i was luckily enough to spot my yarn bombed chair for a second time.
I made 8 crochet hearts and joined them using chain stitch. Then i added yarn top and bottom of each heart, so i could quickly attach the string of hearts to the cross bar and take photos, before i had to jump off the ski lift. I also took the yarn clippers so i could quickly neaten my work.
