I am very lucky to live in a part of the UK that loves Crochet and Yarn. Last year the local college about 3 miles down the road had a Yarn Festival called …. wait for it….. Festiwool!
Did I go – I hear you ask?
Well I bought the tickets, arranged with a friend to go, and then I ended up here! The kids loved it!
Yep – Disneyland Paris! We had a ball …. but no yarn in sight (apart from some crochet stars as you are allowed to take hooks etc on the train!).
So this year – it’s a must!
Must put it on the calendar now!
So – Back to my Yarnbombing experience, this is the first I have seen, and my am I so jealous not to have been involved! I still can’t believe I missed the thing!
It’s in a local churchyard. You can enter by one of 4 gates. All very cleverly labelled to tell people what is going on!
then everywhere I looked there was something else to see!
The rubbish bin was inspired! Actually seeing it being used was brilliant!
Crocheted dangling bits
And some knitting for passers by. I tried to crochet some chain (not being a knitter) – and boy is it hard without a hook!
But I think my favourite has to be the granny squares.
Thank you yarnbombers! You really truly made my day!
One of the ladies who did this can be found here – She has the best tea pot covers you’ve ever seen!
