Yarnbombing


I was back down in Dundonald Park before the weekend, where the leaves are quickly turning, many fallen on the grass. And throughout the park, around lamposts, benches, and railings, there were samples of yarnbombing to be found, sections of knitting closely fitted over these places. It makes for a very colourful addition, though one must wonder who was behind it...

  1. Very colorful and fun to come across! Though can you imagine the amount of time it took?:)

    1. When I was looking at these, I kept searching for a seam, but to no avail. I have no idea how they did it.

  3. This is hilarious. I saw a show about yarn bombing once. It certainly does make you wonder who was behind it.

  4. OMG, I didn't know this existed--looks like some kids at heart had some fun. Hmm, maybe your brother's somehow related to my friend's brother. Thing is, D. still doesn't think what he did was dumb!

    1. I first heard about it a couple of years ago when Helen was regularly blogging, but I've never seen the real thing until here.

  7. I'm sure the yarn-covered railing will be an asset in the winter. Great photos.

  8. Shalom William. This is really a pretty and colorful example of yarn bombing.
    I saw it happen only once in Jerusalem--on a statue of a horse.
    Always thought it might have to do with the annual World Wide Knit in Public Day http://www.wwkipday.com/about

    1. A statue of a horse would be a lot of work to knit around!

  10. That's so fun! I haven't seen this yet where I live, though I've heard of it, so I'm sure it'll make its way here.
