yarn yarn yarn bombing

 

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:

  2. charity-yarn-bombing-details-and-patterns

 

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.

crocheted orange drape

the orange drape is finished!

 

it has a double edge and therefore ​​it became a little curly. the edge i also made ​​a little different than is written in the pattern and instead of three rows, i have made four rows of medallions​​. 

the shawl drapes beautifully and i think it will be quite chic in a natural color. it’s an easy pattern to follow with good charts, but i did not really have fun making it and so i was glad i was done with it, not sure why. the pattern is from the 2012 vogue knitting crochet special, which i have on my ipad.

as usual, i have too many pictures a serie of pictures for you to see, i’m curious to your opinion about the drape.

if you like, just click on the photos to see them in a larger size.

 

joining the wonderful creative friday at natural suburbia

 

hope you will have a lovely and sunny weekend!
