Just saw a fabulous item on ABC about a lady named Fiona Banner who has yarn bombed, her car called Purl which she drives around the town to cheer people up. It started with an idea of knitting and crocheting squares in the dark as they had no electricity for such a long time after the floods which destroed much the town last year . Many of the homes still have not sarted to have work done on them or to be rebuilt. She said sitting in the dark, knitting and crocheting, was like meditation and you don't have to worry about everything..or words to that effect! And Police laugh and turn a blind eye to her. Am unable to bring up a link(not cluey enough ) but hope someone else may be able to. It is lovely story.....

I saw a book in the library recently on how to crochet mandalas. Looked pretty.
