Yarn artist Krochet Kitty started her passion with yarn at an early age. Taught by her Nannie , KK was molded to think outside the box in the medium of crochet. Her grandmother would crochet blankets and sweaters for the family in all sorts of avant guard patterns and colors. After her beloved Nannie passed and left her hook collection to the aspiring and restless young kitten, the possibilities unraveled before her like a ball of perfect yarn on a breezy, summer morning.
After years of creating one of a kind pieces for friends, family and loyal clients, KK stumbled upon the art of yarn bombing and the addiction was deeply running through her thoughts, engulfing her creative juices and holding her captive. “Yarn bombing and crochet is like a fine plate of the finest catnip to me. When I am working on my bombs I am transcended into a place where all of my worries and anxiety disappear into the constantly unraveling ball of yarn”.
The street that she live on used to be such a gray place…. No color …. No life…. No charm or individuality.
In fact, KK and her husband were held up at gunpoint on that street in front of their home. And after that incident, it became her mission to beautify the street that she was becoming to fear…. Crochet = therapy
Tree by tree and limb by limb she transformed her street into a kaleidoscope of colors and texture , and soon neighbors began to covet her creations and stop and take pics and chat and smile at her work. She would sometimes watch out of her bedroom window and smile inside and feel proud that the once dismal street was now attracting attention. Soon neighbors from the area began talking and wondering who was creating the tree bombs. And once one person found out it was me…. It spread , and now she is working on every tree on her street, and she is purring with excitement!
