yarn bomb scooterI got a bit crazy with the knitting needles & the junk pile & the front door, last year. Not only did I yarn bomb everything in sight but I also made a kind of garland out of old novelty spoons, seen tied to the yarn bombed posts. I love junk, yarn, crochet, craft & knitting.


The craft of yarn bombing can take you on interesting journeys.

This yarn bombed bike has appeared in this blog before, but last time we saw it the wheels were on the ground. After this bike had a rocky life in a street art exhibition, survived stolen & returned wheels & stormy weather it has finally found a home in a palm tree. Below is a flashback of pictures from the past life of this plucky little yarn bombed bike.

When the bike was freshly yarn bombed and the yarn was bright & new.

Spotted on display on the caffe strip on Rundle st Adelaide South Australia.

After the wheels were stolen this impassioned message was left with the bike & as a result the wheels were returned although they were quite shabby. The palm tree that suspends this bike is going to be completely covered with yarn bombing so keep your eyes on this space for more photos in the future.

This bike was yarn bombed by my mates at craft club, Sarah-Jane cook, Nunya glazbrook, Branwen Davies, Maureen Cook, Melissa Waters & Me Ilianthe Kalloniatis. Special thanks goes to Nunyas mum for suggesting the wheel spoke design, which was inspired by the bike decorating competition at the Minlaton show when she was a kid.


This cute little street racer is another yarn bombed bike from the bike SA, bike art exhibition.

There is so much great attention to detail in these yarn bombed bike wheels.

The night time motive on these wheels are super cute with the half moon & the owl.

Fluffy bike wheels. If you want to yarn bomb wheels like this there are loads of fluffy yarns that you can buy including chenille.

This car is the ultimate yarn bomb on wheels. I found this pic on a friends Facebook page & I think the photo was taken in Mount Barker south Australia.
