Makers/Craft Market in Los Angeles this weekend…
I happened to put out my fiber items in the hopes that I might actually sell something. No such luck. However, I met Zoë Melo at one of the yard sales.
Zoë heads Neighbors by Design is a socio-enterprise, a community-centered platform that uses design as a tool to bring neighbors together and in the process create products made out of recycled materials donated by neighbors.
While most of my inventory is high end for potential sales income, I do like to create items from scrap yarn, which would fit the business model more. Either way, it’s an opportunity to sell some of my stuff and make some extra money, especially since I have lost my graphic/web design job.
Before I forget, the point of this post is an event:

Clever Advertising Graphics
Here’s a clever advertisement that caught my eye and got me to click.
All the images – at first – appear to be knit, but upon closer inspection, it appears to me they were screen-painted somehow – too many details in one stitch.
Neat to look at.

An high school friend of mine that I recently reconnected with sent me this picture. I am pretty sure she took it while out-and-about in Los Angeles.
I love it! I can tell just by looking at it that it was crocheted.
What do you think?
ADDENDUM: I just learned that this picture was taken out-and-about in Granbury, Texas! Ha ha ha ha ha!
Really? As a journalist, you think they’d fact check more accurately or at least get the story right!
