Another 15 mins of fame...

After the Halloween Yarn Bombing Spree I got a message off a friend on Ravelry saying that we were in The Hereford Times.

"Yarn Craft Rebel hits Hay town centre for Halloween"

And then 24 hours later found an email in my inbox from BBC Hereford and Worcester who had found this blog and wanted an interview. I obliged excitedly and spoke to a lovely woman called Nicola who I had to Yarn Bomb with a four-leafed clover, and my son furnished her with an origami bomb too.

The interview went out on a prime time show between 7am and 9am on Monday 8th November by Howard Bentham who said it was the 'best story he had ever heard'. Each news announcement on the show mentioned us and they even interviewed people around the town. He jokingly called me 'Knitsy' with reference to Banksy which is a fabulous compliment.

If I can get a copy of the recording I will try to post a link here at a later date.

I have had a number of  '15 mins of fame' in the younger, wilder days of my life, but this one was really fun now that I am a humble home-educating mum in a small Welsh town.
