Breast cancer awareness meets crafty hijinx with the Operation PinkBomb project and challenge from Mrs. Greene.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, a cause that is very near to my heart because I know many women who have been diagnosed with – and survived – breast cancer, including my own mother. In honor of these women I decided that I wanted to make a contribution to my town’s annual Paint the Town Pink event, where for the whole month of October local businesses and residents decorate their windows and lawns with the color pink. And I decided that I would do so in the way I know best: with yarn bombs! I have already started madly crocheting with every scrap of pink yarn I can find, and I will keep going all he way up until September 30th, when under he cover of the night’s darkness I will run all over town and install my yarn-y graffiti.

October will be here before you know it, so head over to Mrs. Greene to read more about the project and to join the Operation PinkBomb challenge!
