Today's Art Saves creation and guest blog comes from my creative and crafty friend Kimberly Hirsh, aka Kiba Rika:

Here's a picture of a hat I crocheted. I wanted to take a moment to encourage people to participate in fiber art. It saves in many ways:

- It makes a statement in the form of guerilla yarn art

- It makes people feel better when they're sick

- It makes people aware of their consumption habits

- It makes people think about the amazing environment in which we live

I think The Plain Janes would be on board, especially with the guerilla yarn art.

Check out your local craft store or do a search online for "crochet" or "knitting" to learn one of these excellent arts!

Sonja was having a bad hair day a couple weeks ago and I offered to make her one. Being a crazy hat-making lady is one of my plans for soonish.

Tanita Says :)

Oh, how cool!
I have a pink one of these my sister crocheted, but she says it looks like the things people put on toilet paper rolls...

I think it's cute, anyway. Can't crochet, though.

(Is it a bad sign that my captcha word is exorcist?)

You may already know each other online. Whether or not you do, I think that you and Kiba would very much get along in real life.

Exorcist?! Yikes!
