Spring has sprung. With a new yarn bomb!

I’ve been beavering away for most of today and am pretty happy to have finished and got this up on display in less than 24 hours. Having been given a gorgeous set of Cath Kidston knitting needles for my birthday I decided to put them to use and knit the green background this time. It took quite a lot longer than it would have done to crochet something of similar proportions but I really enjoy the smooth texture of this knitting and am pleased I stuck with it this time! Definitely more to follow. The pink and white flowers were crocheted using a pattern from this video and were really quick and easy to knock up! A nice little flower field yarn bomb to get me back into the swing of things!

An update…

Driving home on Monday I almost crashed the car as I went to do my habitual check that the yarn bomb was still in situ and rather than it be at head height (as it has been since it was put up) it’s been pushed way up high! I’m not sure why, but it certainly made me laugh. I was wondering how long would be acceptable to leave it up for, but that decision is definitely now out of my hands; I can’t reach up there! Looks like it will continue to decorate Redland Road a little while longer then 🙂

In other news, two out of the three monster feet have walked off already 😦 Only the pink and white one remains on the bus stop opposite the White Bear. I’m sure some replacements can be whipped up soon though, especially as it’s International Yarn Bombing Day on Saturday….
