World Yarn Bombing Day 2020

Yes Really!

I only know because Eleonora of Coastal Crochet has written a wonderful blog post about it.

So, although I have not made a new piece especially, I thought I would join in with my mandala that I made in July 2019 especially to hang up outside.

It was hanging on my garage wall opposite my front door last year, but this year I put it on one of the posts that supports my espalier pears as a sort of rainbow homage to all our carers during this time of Covid19. It now faces the road.

One of my (possibly short-sighted) neighbours asked me why I had hung a dartboard on my fence!

It went up in April

and sits beside the bug hotel

which is decaying nicely.

The bug hotel (there since 2013) is usually hidden from view, but I cut back the shrubs surrounding it in the hope that the forsythia and golden privet will bulk up as they regrow. You can see it from the other side in this post.

The mandala pattern is called Tuuli, by Zoya Matyushenko, made with Stylecraft Special DK and a 4.5mm hook and attached to a 70cm metal ring.

Have you ever done any Yarn Bombing?

If you fancy joining in, you can tag your bomb on Instagram, #worldyarnbombingday2020

Happy hooking!

Coastal Yarn Bombing

I’m very excited to tell you that my Seahorses have gone on a little adventure and are now enjoying a life on the Sussex coast.

They have gone to join Eleonora’s yarn bomb and you can read about them in her latest blog post: Update From My Hooks, which has some fabulous photos of them in situ.

The post is a thoroughly good read with so many interesting crochet links and projects.

Eleonora has also kindly put a link to my Seahourse pattern, which you can buy on Ravelry.

You can also follow Eleonora on Instagram and Facebook.

I’m so happy that Eleonora will be coming to Dorset next year AND that she is happy to run a workshop. Once we have the details sorted out I will let you know.
