Chaparral High School Yarn Bombs Graduation 2017

PomPoms and Garlands Chaparral

Thanks to a generous grant from the Rotary Club of Ojai, Knitting in Recovery was able to partner with Chaparral High School in Ojai to start a knitting and crochet class.  We had a full class of both boys and girls, and everybody participated to the fullest. They learned to crochet, and some of the students, boys as well as girls, took their hooks and yarn with them home to continue working on their project.

For their final project, the class worked as a group to yarn-bomb for their graduation ceremony!

They crocheted beautiful vines and made pom-poms in an array of sizes and in all hues of oranges and greens.

The tree right by the stage was wrapped in a crocheted green and white blanket appliquéd with bright orange knitted squares. All the branches of the tree were dripping with pom-pom flowers and pom-pom fruit. Even in the top of tops there were pom-poms, as some of the boys had really good aim. I think that was their favorite part, and they took great pride in getting them “just right.”
