Last night was Culture Night in Reykjavík. That means that we did the amazing yarn bus a year ago. Wow! This year we decided to do something different. We wanted the people to join us and help out. So we applied for the project ‘Yarnstorm Hlemmur!’.
Hlemmur is a bus stop in the city center and has been a bit boring and dull for many years. It is one of the places where homeless people spend their day. But I have always loved this building. There is something about it. But I wanted to bring out how warm and welcoming it can really be. And what better way to do this than with yarn and togetherness?
So many people came! And so many people helped, either by yarnstorming with us, or by donating amazing material for the project. Everyone were interested and positive and we had a blast and are very thankful.
So here are some fun snaps we took.
Let the fun begin!
Jón Gnarr, mayor of Reykjavík stopped by and off course he helped out!
You are doing it right!
Ticket office. The woman in there was knitting on and off throughout the day.

Please stop by at Hlemmur in the following days and check all of it out. It gets to stay there as long as it is pretty and nice. Oh, and spread the joy by sharing and liking us, because we sure do like you!
