I was just taking a look at my yarnbombing Pinterest board and wanted to share some of the things I’ve pinned there with you here today. Enjoy!
The Knit the City yarnbombers completed their biggest every yarnbombing recently, spreading springtime-inspired guerilla knit and crochet creations all over Brixton.
It’s a geeky fun science themed textile are exhibit. The month-long exhibit kicked off yesterday with a yarnbombing event.
A public green space in Atlanta put out a call for art submissions and one of the projects approved was by a group who wanted to yarnbomb some trees in the area. I love the way that they’ve stretched themselves with some cool crochet designs and great colorwork.
Remember a little while back when Olek said that what she does isn’t yarnbombing? There’s certainly a case to be made for that since many of her works are public art works that she has permission to do. But some of her New York street crochet, such as this piece, is not approved by the city and therefore clearly falls under the definition of yarnbombing.
I’ve been playing around with Etsy crochet collages for several weeks on Monday afternoons. However, I’ve been wanting to learn more about creating Etsy treasuries. The idea is similar – grouping together crochet items on Etsy around a theme. Here’s my first one:
So here they are and I hope you enjoy the beautiful crochet and knit work regardless of your personal opinions on the controversial craft of yarnbombing.
