Autumn in South Australia is here & it’s time to get my house & garden ready for winter, so of course I’m yarn bombing everything in sight, to give it a warm feeling. This tree is on my front fence line & was actually dead when I moved into my house. A lot of people told me to cut the tree down but I decided just to trim it back & plant my garden around it. I have yarn bombed one of the main branches with a cream coloured knit. I am planning to adorn the tree with more yarn bombing and some wind chimes over the next few months.
I LOVE TO KNIT & I’D RATHER YARN BOMB MY GARDEN THAN KNIT A SWEATER. MY MOST RECENT EFFORT IS THE YARN BOMBING OF MY NEW BIRDBATH. I WRAPPED THE BASE IN MULTICOLOURED FINGER KNITTING & SEWED ON SOME CROCHET FLOWERS. MY GARDEN IS QUITE WHIMSICAL AND IT IS A WORK IN PROGRESS. I LOVE TO ADD NEW PLANTS AND STAUES AND TO PHOTOGRAPH MY PROGRESS AS I GO. I HAVE COVERED THE POSTS TO THE ENTRANCE WAY OF MY HOUSE WITH BRIGHTLY KNITTED YARN BOMBS AND FILLED MY GARDEN WITH LOTS OF LITTLE TREASURES AND LOTS OF CACTI AND SUCCULENTS.
