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.

NEON CROCHET SCARF
This scarf is made from simple crochet granny squares. The neon colours of electric blue and fluorescent yellow are an unexpected combination but they work well. It’s nice to use colour for winter accessories. The scarf style is 1960’s but the colours are pure 1980’s.
I have to confess that I didn’t crochet this myself. I found it at my local op shop in the middle of a hot summer. The colours took my fancy so I bought it and stashed it away until the Australian winter hit recently.
Hand crafted fashion pieces like this scarf are one of a kind.
A VERY LONG SCARF
I HAVE BEEN KNITTING THIS RIDICULOUSLY LONG SCARF FOR ABOUT A MONTH NOW. IT’S ACTUALLY TO BULKY TO FIT IN MY KNITTING BASKET AND I’M KEEPING IT IN A LARGE DUFFEL BAG.
I’M ON A MISSION TO MAKE THIS SCARF AS LONG AND COLOURFUL AS I CAN, JUST BECAUSE I CAN !
I MAY DO SOME YARN BOMBING WITH IT WHEN I’VE FINISHED IT.
I LIKE TO KNIT AS A WAY OF KEEPING CALM. THE ABOVE BALL OF KNITTING IS MY STRESS BALL.
STREET CRAFT and POLES
Yarn bombed crossing poles have been springing up around Port Adelaide.
Some surprisingly colourful yarn bombing has been brightening up the poles out front of some of the shops in Port Adelaide. The whole community is passionate about street craft or street art.
It’s amazing how many new yarn bombs have been quietly sewn onto poles in the night.
poles are the perfect canvas for yarn bombers who utilise knitting, crochet, pom-poms and even buttons.
Striped yarn bomb poles, patch work poles, blue poles, red poles and rainbow coloured poles are flooding the world of friendly street art.
Yarn bombing is a great subject for photography whether snapped with camera or phone.
If you want to try your hand at yarn bombing and you don’t have the time to knit then you can sew a scarf to a pole or tie one around a mail box, pole or tree.
These yarn bombed pillars look rather majestic.
