Yesterday was a perfect winter’s day – blue skies and sunshine, and warm enough not to need a sweater. Wonderful yarnbombing weather! I drove over to the next village in the morning and met up with one of my girlfriends and a bunch of other women from our valley. The event was organised by the local healthfood store in conjunction with Council, and is part of a wider initiative to bring more visitors to the area. My own personal motivation is just to make people smile 😊
Some people had brought prepared pieces like me, others were knitting in the street, and there were even lots of children making pom poms! It was just great. So much fun!
I crocheted my freeform / patchwork piece to one tree, and on another I hooked on an abandoned temperature blanket I started last year, a lovely long bright granny stripe that went lengthways up a whole trunk. Lots of people stopped to chat – there was such a good vibe from passersby!
Here are some of the other trees. Aren’t they fabulous?
Are you a yarnbomber? This is just my second time. It won’t be the last 😃
