I saw that One Sheepish Girl is hosting a yarn bomb a long and I thought “I’ve got to have a go, this is brilliant!”. I haven’t done any yarn bombing yet – partially because I think I might get told off if someone saw me trying to hang something on a sign or on a fence and this thought deterred me slightly. But last night I had a revelation, a spark of courage and I thought, “it’s removable, it’s pretty and colourful so… Why not!” I also really enjoy the community aspect that these kind of events inspire and it’s been lovely looking at all the places around the world where people have participated.
Encouraged and inspired after seeing some of the other yarn bomb photos on twitter, I hooked up ten lilac hearts with a dark purple loop to hang them up and loooook! They look rather cute all huddling together. Though not for long! Their fate was destined for a fence, a tree, a bench, a sign or anywhere that will have them!
One Single Heart
All did not go as planned on my first day of yarn bombing! My house mate, a friend and I decided to go on a little adventure in his 1970′s mini cooper (absolutely lush) to a “Ye Olde English Pub” somewhere hidden in the English countryside. This is as far as we got unfortunately… The idea. The poor mini broke down before we could manage to leave our city boundaries.
We broke down in the middle of a steep hill, I know, I know not the best place but hey, couldn’t be helped! Kindly two other gentlemen helped us push it up the hill to this road and after a very, very, very long wait (it was dark before we left) we managed to get home.
Aside from this unfortunate incident .. I STILL wanted to yarn bomb, and this lovely street had the pleasure of my lilac hearts.
My Yarn Bombs
So I would say for my first yarn bombing – I will definitely be finding time next week to bomb the rest of my hearts and will be looking to do a few more yarn bombs in the future, it was a lot of fun – I would say it was a success and a half!
To round off the day we had a cup of Revelation Tea – So unusual but a lovely subtle flavour. It’s a flower that blooms as it brews.
