"Yarn bombing, yarnbombing, yarnstorming, guerrilla knitting, or graffiti knitting is a type of graffiti or street art that employs colourful displays of knitted or crocheted cloth rather than paint or chalk." Wikipedia
Whatever you end up calling it, I can guarantee you will have an AmAzIng time! I have not had such fun in ages, we laughed and flirted and chatted - a wonderful, wonderful day. Here's to the next event!!!
It just amazes me that despite the internet being worldwide, you can meet someone down the road via blogland. This is what happened with Fiona and I, and she was more than up for helping me yarn bomb benches outside Waterside Arts Centre in Sale. Fiona's friend joined us, along with my friend Sarah, who had an impromptu crochet lesson at the same time :)
The bench looked FaB when we'd attached all the pieces of crochet and knitting together, all supplied by friends (and the four of us of course!). But we didn't stop there! We added crocheted bunting to another bench, pom poms and crocheted leaves to trees, and my little owl had a sit in a tree for a little while!
All of these images are courtesy of Fiona and you can view more over on Flickr. If you've never been involved in yarn bombing, I can highly recommend it. We were still buzzing after working on the bench and it's surroundings so moved onto the Bean and Brush for cake, tea and crochet, and left behind a very warm tree ;)
