hello, thanks for stopping by!
today i’m going to confess something: i’m not a huge fan of yarn bombing;)
but a while ago i found this project on the website of lionbrand: yarn bomb a chair, which seemed like fun and i’ve pinned it on pinterest.
then i saw – i do not remember where – a picture of a playground for small children. at night, people had the trees among other things, wrapped in yarn and the next morning the surprise for the children was … well big. the reaction of the children was so cute.
and there is a blogger, the grange range, who i follow for a while through my wordpress reader and she has put a request for a little help on her blog and guess, yes it has to do with yarn bombing.
she says this: “i work in a lovely little family-orientated gp surgery and i thought it would make our patients smile if we could yarn bomb the place with colorful flowers and wildlife animals and create a ‘fantasy garden’, and i thought why not ask for some help from my wonderful blogging friends.”
here are the links to her posts:
this idea is so sweet i think, but at the moment i can’t help in an active way, to my regret. what i can do is donate and this weekend i have looked in my closet and made a selection. hopefully the yarns and crocheted thingies (pictures below) are usable for the project and i like to send it across the north sea this week.
here are some pictures and links:
… and garlands
