I yarn bombed this old wooden walking cane with vibrant nylon knitting yarn.

I found this wooden toy horse at my local vinnies thrift store & I decided to yarn bomb it.
I love my local vinnies thrift store and this yarn bombed pole.I found this pre-loved hand knitted toy at vinnies for half price. I thought the care that must have been taken in knitting this toy deserved to be seen by more people, so I took a few polaroids of it to share.I found this little needlepoint in a kit at a market bazaar when I was on a visit to Tasmania and I stitched it up while I was on my holiday.


This tree was yarn bombed with a lot of love, a lot of yarn went into it and a lot of hours were spent knitting it, not to mention the effort involved in attaching it to the tree.

Unfortunately some vandals got to this yarn bombing with some sort of blade. The good news is that the tree is happy and healthy and we got to the scene quickly and did some repair work on the knitting.

The repairs were done on the fly and the only tool we had at hand were some sparkly craft pipe cleaners.

The pipe cleaners did their job well and I think even added some pizzaz to the yarn bombing.

As one of my wordpress comrades alessandro ciapanna on Knit bomb it. Craft it. Photograph it. # wisely commented ‘street art, as life itself, is of an ephemeral nature.’


Friday night a mysterious group of ladies was spotted yarn bombing Port Adelaide. They started with this vibrant park bench.

This bike rack was yarn bombed by two ladies who disappeared into the night.

Even the tree’s were targeted by yarn bombers.

Ladders were seen against alleyway walls suspiciously near yarn bombed light poles

The traffic lights look great in multi coloured crochet.

This bollard has been yarn bombed with local football colours.

Keep your eye on this space! tomorrow I plan to get a lot of day time photographs of yarn bomb craft in Port Adelaide.


Since I yarn bombed the poles on my front porch, door to door salesmen have stopped knocking on my door, not sure what puts them off, but I’m pleased.

I like to use really bright colours on my yarn bombed poles. I like to knit textured stitches & to sew crochet or tapestry adornments on them.

Yarn bombing looks great on oddly shaped poles.

This pink & blue pole is a knit crochet blend.

As long as you use great colours you don’t need to be a great knitter. Craft should be fun.
