pole cover

I missed tagging! I haven't put anything up since March, I found this wonderfully lovely colourful yarn and just started knitting, I knew I wanted to do a pole cover and I just haven't been sure of where. I decided to do it outside of the Mustard Seed Shelter. Earlier I did one outside of the Mustard seed's downtown location. I'm not really sure how to explain this but with my yarn bombing I want there to be a clear connection to poverty. I did some stuff when I was in India and I'm gonna see more about doing more in Canada. I see Knit graf as bringing beauty to places that doesn't always get it, and we all know the homelessness is stereotyped and feared, so here we go bringing some beauty. I also want to use it as some sort of tool of activism...not sure how yet but I'm gonna be highlighting these place with my knit graf.
