Since I expressed and interest in yarn bombing I have been sent photos of a few examples of recent yarn bombing.
Firstly, I saw a photograph on Facebook of this one in Stafford, which appeared in the entry I wrote recently about this yarn bombing lark.
Then I heard about Chipping Norton, which is close to where I used to live (and where my second son was born). Apparently ‘Chippy’ is a strong contender for Yarn Bombing Capital of the UK. These are all photographs of recent yarn bombs.
Today in Chippy, appeared these ones…
I actually know the name of the red, white and blue yarn bomber. She’s a friend of a friend of a friend. But I won’t ‘out’ her. She is brightening up people’s lives so long may she continue to do so.
Another friend then pointed out that the town of Ware in Hertfordshire is another contender for this prestigious accolade of Yarn Bomb Capital of the UK. These guys are serious, they even have a Facebook page devoted to promoting their yarn bombing efforts.
I hope I get sent some more examples. This phenomenon has still not reached my home town.
I’ve just been sent the ultimate yarn bomb for sci-fi fans. If I could make this my boys would be very impressed.
And now yarn bombing has reached Charlbury, the small town where I used to live.
