Yarn Bombing Day

Yarn bombing - hexagon design left in a wood

When I discovered that today was World Yarn Bombing Day I had to share this picture. A yarn motif left in a wood may strike some readers as out of place (and I don’t see much yarn bombing in North West England*) but I don’t think the tree minds. If the tree kept a diary, it would surely celebrate the attention and the intention.

And for this human being, the sight of a simplified rainbow design in early April, placed where a solitary passerby would see it, provided a small comfort, a sign of hope and togetherness in those first cold and scary days as we tried to adjust to a topsy turvy world.

If you have any pictures to share, please join in! When creative people get together, the world is better for it.

For more about yarn bombing day, check out today’s posts on Coastal Crochet and Wild Daffodil or find out about Grace Brett on the Women You Should Know website. I prefer the term Grace used for her hobby, yarnstorming.

*Of course, it is more than possible I’m not moving in the right circles.

  1. I’ve never heard of this Day, but when I used to do street photography in the city centre years ago, I remember photographing lots of trees growing in the main shopping area that were wrapped in yarn or had crocheted decorations.

    Perhaps that ‘yarn bombing’, although I seem to remember they were in red, green and white around Christmas time.
