I’ll admit it - I love yarn bombing. Bright rows of yarn knit around poles and trees in urban spaces, in places where yarn has no right to be. One moment I’m walking the grey pavements of the city, and the next…
…my veins are humming with the thrill that comes from encountering the pleasantly unexpected: playful expressions of craft that delight, comfort and add color to an otherwise cement-hued day.
Like yarn bombs for the home, these whimsical, yet sophisticated, pieces create a rush of adrenaline, a hint of giddiness and touch of desire.
