My mother has this lovely Buddha statue standing serenely by her front door. The winter came & I was doing some yarn bombing around the neighbourhood, so I decided to knit Buddha a pink scarf. Yarn bombing keeps trees, poles & statues warm and colourful in any season.
I’ve been yarn bombing for a good few years now & in the course of my yarn bombing adventures I’ve always liked to take a lot of photographs of my yarn bombs or any outstanding yarn bombs that I’ve come across in my local neighbourhood. I’ve yarn bombed in Adelaide & Tasmania, in my own front yard & in the park on my street. Yarn bombing has bought me hours of entertainment & a lot of joy. Photographing my yarn bombs has rekindled a love of photography that I had back in my university days. All in all yarn bombing keeps me young & playful, even though it is based on the so called Granny arts of knitting & crochet.Look out for me in 40 years time because I’ll be the Granny with the rainbow coloured walking cane. I will basically yarn bomb anything thats not nailed down, including this money tin.
I HAVE BEEN KNITTING THIS EXTRA LONG SCARF FOR A FEW MONTHS AND IT’S GOTTEN SO LONG THAT IT NO LONGER FITS IN MY KNITTING BAG. I HAVE NOT MEASURED IT. I’M GOING TO KEEP ON KNITTING UNTIL IT GETS TOO HEAVY AND BIG TO CARRY WITH ME TO MY CRAFT CLUB NIGHT. THIS SCARF HAS WITNESSED A LOT OF GOSSIP AND LIFE CHANGES WHILST I’VE BEEN KNITTING IT.
knit bombing and crochet yarn bombing are craft sensations this season.
You can yarn bomb with crochet with knitting, old blankets or jumpers. As long as it’s colourful and fun and done with care yarn bombing will spice up and warm up any neighbourhood.It doesn’t have to cost a lot to knit a tree warmer if you use vintage wool from the thrift store or even an old unpicked jumper.Is this tree up for lease? I’ll take it.Anybody can take a crack at yarn bombing including girls & boys, kids & grownups alike.It’s fun to knit craft & sew & it’s always nice to snap a colourful photograph when it’s done.
