Yarn bombing in Alameda!


Yarn Bombing with Bob and his dog Bruno.

So this was new to me! I was meeting a friend for lunch @ The Blue Dot Cafe. I tied my bike up to a post, and next to it I saw this pole wrapped in knit squares! I decided to take a photo. I hadn’t met Bob before so I asked if I could use the photo of him and his dog, Bruno, in my blog. He told me about Yarn Bombing but he hadn’t seen anything this extravagant in his Alameda wanderings. Amazing what stuff I learn each day. customer service can be a bitch, when you expect it, and don’t get it.

I arrived in Alameda in 1973, as a new bride...with husband Carl Schumacher, both of us from Newport Beach. He was embarking on his career as a Naval Architect (i.e. yacht designer) under Gary Mull. Please see the 'ABOUT ME' page in this website! to see how it has all turned out! I'm so blessed!
