Happily, the first yarnbombing project by Ganchitos Mexico City was a huge success!
Sadly, I´ve learned that the beautiful work of Ganchitos has since been taken down,
but that´s why it was documented with so many beautiful pictures! :)
The installation lasted between 2 and 7 days, and was at Parque España in La Condesa, Mexico City.
It was a colorful, collaborative effort that sparked curiosity and imagination.
It took a lot longer than expected, but it was also a lot more fun.
There was a "gift branch" offered to passersby who wanted to take something from the tree. :)
It felt great to take very old swatches, motifs, WIPs (Works in Progress),
and UFOs (UnFinished Objects) and put them to good use.
It was exhilarating to work together, adults and children,
in order to make the world more joyful and beautiful, even if for only a day or two.
Passersby were intrigued, playful, curious, disapproving,
interested, confused, excited, skeptical, enchanted...
Thanks to @knittuk for organizing the event! :)
