Matching sweaters never go out of style! I found this photograph in a vintage movie magazine from the 1950’s.

NEW YARN BOMBING BOOK

Check out this short ebook.
book cover yarn bombing

Art of yarn bombing is a pictorial essay on yarn bombing and street craft in South Australia. Full of colourful pictures and inspiring tips on knitted and crochet art projects from street artists and rebellious home crafters. Tips and photographs of knitted/yarn bomb tree adornments. Yarn bombed bikes and furniture and knitted foods. This is not a pattern book, it is a prescription for crafting outside of the box. This book is part art and photographic book and part craft book and you don’t need to be a crafter to enjoy the whimsical full colour photography and interesting anecdotes contained within it’s pages. If you enjoy looking at great photographs and exploring quirky subcultures or if you have a strong interest in street art or craft then there is something in this book for you.

YARN BOMBING ON BRUNY ISLAND

yarn bombing bruny island 2I yarn bombed these two trees while I was on holiday on Bruny Island Tasmania. I started knitting on the plane on the way to Tasmania and kept on knitting during my holiday, as I find knitting and craft activities very relaxing.yarn bombing tasmania 1This yarn bomb was done on private property with permission. One of the great things about these trees is that they can be seen from the road, so anybody driving down this dirt track can enjoy this semi bush yarn bombing.yarn bombing bruny island 3This yarn bombing is street art on a country road. Not a lot of dirt tracks have this kind of colourful yarn bomb tree street art.
