Dancing shoes

This dancing couple was missing something...

So I thought, if the shoes fit, why don´t I just try them on:
Luckily they fit, I had made some measurements (with my daughter´s hand) some days before and what-da-ya-know, my ´calculations´ were correct.
Here the complete picture of the dancing couple with shoes on:

Status: dependable source has said that they are still hanging, no reactions yet however...

Hotel de Ville

Sitting in front of my tent (come rain or shine) in France I did some knitting and some crocheting. Of course I had to leave something behind. Wasn´t much, but I was glad I did it. It was in front of the Hotel de Ville in Gerardmer. Anybody seen it?

Status: no idea

The Giraffe

This was my entry to the Giraffe contest set up by Francis from the new shop KnottenWol. I entered with an illusion knit giraffe scarf. It was quite a lot of work (lots of counting). The pattern can be found on ravelry.
Today was the official opening of the store and although I didn´t win the contest, my scarf is covering the entire left front leg of the giraffe. I am very honored!!
Here the leg up close.
Status: the giraffe will be put in the shop´s window, so I hope the leg will be covered by my scarf forever!!

Yarnbombing at midnight

This must be the worst picture ever, but I was returning home from a Jazz festival when I dropped these two yarnbombings. This was way back in June. Haven't updated my blog in a long time.
Next day the one on the pole was gone and the little guy on the bench, I don't know if it was there. There was a fat guy sitting on the bench, I did not have the guts to ask him to move over.

Status: all gone within the week.
