    Mikey and Dan,
    I found The Crochet Crowd just in the last six months or so and was totally amazed at the patterns and videos. I’ve been crocheting for many years, but nothing like this. Today I came across the yarn bombing articles and videos. I know you are talented, but this just absolutely blew me away. I have so much more to learn, but until I do, I will be happy crocheting using
    the knowledge I now have from you. Thank you so much. Blessings to you both.

    I love free form yarn art

    I love free form. I also do bead work in free form, and I am trying my hand at free form quilting. It makes me think so much more, than following a pattern, although following a pattern gives me great results also (that giraffe is so darned cute!!). So, just keep doing what you do. Don’t second guess yourself. If someone doesn’t like what YOU do, that is THEIR problem, not yours! You go Mikey!!!!!

    First, I want to say I love the site, your YouTube videos and the FB page.

    Now, onto the topic.

    “In the yarn world, it seems to be okay to criticize others for wasting yarn.” Really? Are these critics paying for your yarn (or anyone else’s for that matter)? If not, not to be rude but they need to “shut it”. For one thing, they’re showing their ignorance as fibers have been used, pretty much since the beginning of their existence. Not just to provide clothing for humans but to decorate our homes (or caves 😉 ), horse buggies, etc.

    Second, again, if you’re not taking the yarn from their stash or they’re not paying for your yarn, what business is it of theirs how you use it?

    You keep doing what you’re doing and try to ignore the nay sayers.
