Ik hou van verhalen over kinderen die haak, vooral jongens die haken, en er is een ik moet gewoon met u delen. De Crafter is Nathan Coburn, een tween die ik hoorde over onlangs uit een nieuwsbericht over zijn yarnbombing workshops.

Wie is Nathan Coburn?

Nathan, aka Knit Kid, beschrijft zichzelf op zijn blog:

“Ik ben een jonge jongen die graag haken, die woont in Vancouver, en heeft een passie voor vezelkunsten.”

Specifieker, Hij is een 11-jarige jongen die zijn Vancouver huis houdt, garen winkels en het creatieve leven. Hij is een ballet student, een ondernemer die maatwerk nodig is voor haakwerk en

Yarnbombing Klassen

In augustus van dit jaar deelde Nathan zijn eerste yarnbomb op zijn blog:

yarnbombing 400x267 Amazing Crocheting Kids: Nathan Coburn

Het is eigenlijk zijn eerste grote guerilla haak tag; his first smaller ones are incorporates into the design at the top of the piece. He’s been yarnbombing for about two years after coming across the Yarn Bombing boek in the library. You can pop over to his blog to see more of his work.

I learned about this yarnbombing work from a nieuwsartikel about how Coburn had received a neighborhood grant to teach yarnbombing classes in his area. He won the grant previously and used the money to teach origami, which he had learned in his Montessori school. This year it was yarnbombing. He did four sessions of yarnbombing lessons in his area; uitchecken Week One op zijn blog.

What an awesome kid!

@CrochetBlogger that's awesome! I taught a group of at risk youth one was mostly boys and they were awesome!


Hi Kathryn, I wanted to contact you as, since you changed the site my RSS feed no longer works. I have you on my 'live' blogroll, on my blog but the last post that is listed is over a week ago. In desperation, I tried an unsubsribe and re subscribe but still get an error message headed up 'Wordfence has limited your access to this site' every time I try to access. Do you know if anyone else has had this problem? So sorry to write this in 'Comments', but your contact form does not like my e-mail address for some reason and says it's invalid! Help!

(Great post btw)

Many Thanks



@rohnstrong I used to be a foster parent and worked extensively in the social work system. Those boys still really lack male role models.


@rohnstrong What a cool thing to do. World needs more men like you!

@sparklyjools Thanks Jules. I am aware of the problem. Something weird happened with one of my plugins that affected my RSS feed. I think it was actually just a coincidence that it happened when I switched hosts although I'm not certain. In elk geval, it just so happened that it occurred right at the same time that my awesome web guy was moving across the country and setting up shop in his new space and due to moving and some technical issues he hasn't been able to fix it yet. Echter, he knows about the issue and is working on having it fixed shortly.

Thanks for leaving the comment. (Not sure why the contact form wouldn't be kind to you but I'll send over an email as well.) It really does help when my readers tell me about things like this. In werkelijkheid, it was readers letting me know that made me aware of this one in the first place. And it's really touching that my readers care enough about my content to notice when it's missing!
