YARN BOMBING KEEPS ME YOUNG

yarn bomb postI’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.SONY DSCLook out for me in 40 years time because I’ll be the Granny with the rainbow coloured walking cane. SONY DSCyarn bomb money boxI will basically yarn bomb anything thats not nailed down, including this money tin.

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.
