I was watching TV this evening and on popped an article about Yarn Bombing (I think it was on ‘The One Show‘ but don’t quote me!)…I had heard of it before, but hadn’t really paid that much attention to it!…Well I happened to say I liked this on Facebook and so many people replied, so I thought I would bring this FANTABULOUS idea to your attention (thats if you havn’t heard of it before of course!)!
It’s kind of friendly graffitti but applied with quirky knitting of all shapes and sizes…you know the kind of stuff that, if you saw it, it would make you Happy! Just looking at these pictures shows you a little insight into it!…It so makes me want to get out the ‘Ole’ Knitting needles again…and brighten up my Towns lamp posts and pavements etc!
Anyway to have a preview and a butchers into a bit more detail have a look HERE
You will be so glad that you did…and I hope it will put a BIG smile on your face just like it did us, at The Happy House 😉
Have you ever participated in an event like this? and if so what have you knitted and where have you placed it?…Are you planning on Yarn Bombing in the near future…if so please tell us more…As I am sooooo interested in this! Thanks my luvelies xx

Hi!! Your blog is fantastic!! I loved! Beautiful images!!!Have a nice weekend!!!
Hi there, lovely lovely knitting…go and have a nosey at the knitting on Saltburn pier, in the North East of England. Ive noticed someone has already commented about it but its totally fabulous and worth a peak, olympic theme! Im sure it'll make you smile 🙂
I loved that feature it made me smile. What harmless high jinks, llike the people who make gardens in derelict spaces overnight. 🙂
I' so gutted I missed the show – seeing all the tweets and fb posts about it this morning. I've been trying to get some peeps to do this here in Ireland but they are all a little shy. The nearest I got was covering my car in knitted squares last year http://michellemadethis.blogspot.com/2011/04/knitted-car.html
I haven't seen any, but did you see this? http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2111518/A-yarn-Olympic-proportions–Mystery-knitter-attaches-50-yard-long-scarf-featuring-woollen-athletes-pier.htmlFantastic!xx

Oh- I have never heard of anything like this but it is so comical. What a fun thing to do! xo Diana
Wow, this is funny. Uphere in Holland they only do the poles of the streetlights but this strings with puppets are super!
Hi Emma…Can I come with you 😉 isnt it fun! xx
Oh would so love to do this. Once I have more spare time I am going to start going out late at night to cheer people up when they wake up 🙂
