Yarnbomb!

Today I saw some yarn bombing in Stones Corner! I was pretty chuffed and took a shatload of photos.

Knit-Pow!




Visual Culture and Knitting

Bus stop. They matched the colours nicely.

Wordspy

Light pole. Very vivid! The colour choice is very bold.

Doily dealie

Someone had also put little doily dealies on the hand rails that serve the stairs of this building across from the sushi train.

Slips

These are a bit lethal looking, and they slide around quite a bit, so I don't see them lasting very long.

Lacking win

Frankly they don't have the same amount of awesome as the rest of things.

Instructables on Yarnbombing.

Another light pole. Crochet?

Australian example

Pink and purple taxi rank.

Some dainty examples

Blue jester sock for light pole. Really, I don't have the patience to knit something that big and then not wear it everywhere.

Also, Tasmanians!

Monster bollard. Some children were playing with it while I took pictures. I have some great accidental shots of two little girls batting the pompoms about, but since they aren't my kids I'll refrain from posting them on the toobs.

Wicked cool. Recently the whole of kings x specifically and also inner city sydney was yarnbombed... all thanks to this lovely yank on my flist called Magda Sayeg (she admitted to it in a local rag) hopefully she'll be back soon.

It's just so neat. Very heavy texturally, and I really wanted to touch it even though I just know wool next to major road = filthy bad real quick.

Do you have pics of the lady's work?

No, my flist is high enough traffic without them. I do check in now and then. You're welcome to cross post if you like.

I had someone I suspect as one of the culprits comment on one of my posts somewhere recently.

That's awesomely random. Anarchy at it's snuggly warmest for sure.
