Gray day but we’ve seen some colorful sights in the past hour. First, Marguerite Lynch shared the news that her twin sons Sean and Andrew Lynch turned 13 today – and got a flamingo flock courtesy of friends, with the help of the youth group at Admiral Congregational Church (which happens to be right across the street from her house; we recently covered their flocking at Alki Mail and Dispatch). The flamingos are currently gracing Marguerite’s famous planting-strip edible-garden spots, as well as part of the rest of her yard. Meantime, in The Junction:
Jaesee the West Seattle “yarn-bomber” has struck again. We told her story here earlier this week, after her guerrilla knitting project at an Admiral District bike rack; this morning, she announced a new creation, and we photographed it while driving through The Junction (it’s at the southeast corner of Walk All Ways). First word came from WSB contributor Keri DeTore, who reported on the first “yarn-bomb” and got a statement from her – after the jump:
did another one because it is really fun to make and put them up, and also to keep up the momentum on the website so I can start promoting things like the LYS Tour in May, the May Day project I have planned and International Yarn Bomb Day on June 11th.
I chose The Junction because it is a high traffic area, and because there are a lot of artsy places and folks around there that I thought would appreciate it. Since it was relatively early in the evening and a busy intersection, we had a lot of people driving and walking by, and the response was 100% positive!
Someone took a photo, people driving by waved and smiled, it is quite a fun time and it just makes me want to go back out tomorrow and do more!
