I know, I know …. bombs are supposed to be bad … right? Well these ones aren’t! 😀
I test crocheted Heather’s Love Bombs and I can’t tell you how beautiful these bombs are. In addition to beautiful, they’re versatile. These bombs don’t destroy, they promote love! How much better can they get? Wanna see?
they had a bit of a regular start. nothing to write home about, nothing to talk about …
as they stacked up … something magical started to happen …
they got a bit of extra dressing up … not that they need it … then it was time for action …
bombs away!!!!! First up … love for an old apt complex fence …
while I was putting these up, passersby stared, but most smiled. I think it was seeing the bust of colour on the old fence that did it. the love bombs were working …. 😀
reminding passers-by that life is beautiful … no matter what …
then with some awesome tea, and favorite mug, they bombed some Fall reading … incognito … disguised as a book-marker …
then they made pretty, a co-worker’s favourite mug. Reminding her … she’s loved …
and if that wasn’t enough … BOOM!!!! they love bombed a gift to a favourite knitter …
Even my yarn basket got bombed!! 😀
Do you believe me now?
See, I told you … love bombs are the best kind of bombs ever!!!!!
- Pattern: Love Bombs (test pattern)
- Designer: Heather Cox
- Yarn: KP Dishie Cotton, Shine Worsted; Lion Brand Kitchen Cotton, Martha Stewart Crafts — Extra Soft Wool Blend
- Other Comments: The pattern was well written and can be completed even by a novice crocheter as a first project. I took less than 10 mins for each bomb.
- Modifications: I made the cast-on and the finishing tails 6 inches and longer so I could have more options for these bombs.
When she releases the pattern, run, don’t walk to get it. Then go spread some love!!!
9.30.2013: Edited to add: My petals are a little frillier than the designer’s. I believe that happened because I’m a really tight crocheter so the petals were pulled in tighter on the 2nd round.
Awesomeness!!!! What a great way to spread the love!
It felt really good to do! It was just as fulfilling for me as it was to the passersby. 😀
Wahoo! I love what you did with these Nicki! thank you for testing & reviewing them for me. 🙂
they were a pleasure to make. I really had fun doing it. 😀
There is nothing like love bombs. What a lovely project, Nicky! Wish I could be a hiding out watching the people who see these.
It was really interesting to see the responses. It was even more heart-warming to see the smiles. 😀
What a gesture! That is really awesome! 🙂
I enjoyed testing the pattern, making these pretties and setting up the photoshoot! I was really amused by the passersby! A woman tying crochet flowers onto a fence is not something they see everyday … even in Brooklyn! LOLOL! 😀
