yarn bombing the twins

Recently the 3 Minnesota Twins statues at Target Field were yarn bombed.

IMG_1507I played a small part – o.k. more like a pretty big part, considering I made Kent Hrbek’s hat, and his head was 28″ around and 18″ high!! At least I didn’t have to make one of the sweaters for the statues. I think they were all machine knitted, thank goodness.

It took me three evenings to make Kent’s hat on size 19 needles with two strands of Encore Chunky held together.
