While having a mosey around the internet, I came across this article on the Daily Mail online.  Now normally the Daily Mail is not somewhere that I hang out, I find their politics not to my taste and it's actually pretty poorly written most of the time.  Not that I can talk, but nobody is paying me to write!  But this article really caught my eye, and I thought I would share it.  Here goes with the linky....

How cool are these!  I am in awe of the talent and dedication that has gone into these, I'm very much more a quick project kinda gal, and anything that took that long to complete would lose my interest before it was complete.  This is something that I do need to work on, but more of that later.  There is also a Facebook group dedicated to yarnbombing, with some more cool photos, so have hopped over and 'liked' that.

So, who has been eyeing up the lamposts outside their house?  Or in my case, the particularly drab looking bus stop directly opposite my front door?  I live in a small village with an excellent bus service (I know, it's not usual!), so a lot of people use that bus stop to commute, often early in the morning looking half asleep.  I am hatching grand plans to lighten their mornings, but I fear it will come to nothing much due to lack of time, energy, sleep etc.  But in my mind's eye, I can see a perfect woolly bus shelter, and I would love to make it happen!

  1. That is so fabulous! I love the idea of yarnbombing, altho it would have to be washable in case the local dog cocked a leg at it LOL!
