Yarn bombing with Instagram

I recently joined Instagram and have been excited to share photographs of my yarn bombs on Instagram. It’s a lot of fun & whilst it’s actually new technology it has that lovely old fashioned feeling that I used to get with a Polaroid camera & it has a vibrant immediacy about it. So much fun. I thought I’d share some of my Instagram photographs on my blog.
