Side-view Mirror Cozy

I asked my husband if he would mind me tagging his truck with a yarn bomb. He said no because he couldn’t imagine where I could tag it! Though I have a place in mind for a later tag, he suggested a side-view mirror cozy. I went right home a crocheted one up! The first one ended up being a yarn bomb on my brother-in-laws truck. Since I didn’t have access to the truck, I made a cozy to fit my vehicle since they are both Nissans. I decided to put a dog paw on it since they have a dog. I wanted to make a pink paw because their dog is a girl, but I was afraid my brother-in-law would take it off immediately!

The cozy turned out so well, I decided to make a cozy for my Nissan. I was going to put a bike on it, but my husband requested a ninja. Both of them are secured with a button so they can be removed and washed. I put the cozy on my brother-in-law’s truck when they were away from home. Still waiting to see when they discover it! Unfortunately his mirror is smaller than mine. Not as good a fit, but still workable.

Turns out my mother let the cat out of the bag. I ended up telling my sister where to look! She still enjoyed it.

Sunflower Tag

Spotted on the corner of Tutt and Stetson Hills in Colorado Springs, these “giant” sunflowers don’t seem so giant! I guess giant is relative. There are three sunflowers on this pillar. They get smaller depending on perspective/distance. They seem large when walking by them. To drivers they are hardly noticeable!  The groundhog said it would be an early Spring. I don’t think he meant February 3! Perhaps these can help bring in the sun.

Crocheted using Red Heart yarn and a size L hook.

School Zone Cozy

This school zone speed limit sign got cozied. Located near Odyssey Elementary in Colorado Springs, this post got a snowflake coat for winter. My sister said it looked like spiders crawling up the post. Now, of course, all I can see is spiders! I hope it doesn’t freak the kids out. The snowflake pattern was done with a little Fair Isle and intarsia. The yarn was Red Heart; hook size L.

Yarn Bomb Bolivia

A friend sent me a picture of a tree that was yarn bombed in La Paz, Bolivia. Naturally nothing like that happened while I was living there. Thankfully my friend knows how much I love to knit and crochet. She just had to send me this picture.

I think whoever did this did a beautiful job. I especially like how many branches were covered. I also think the pom poms hanging from the branches are a crowning touch.

It’s winter around here. I think a few trees in my area could use some sweaters! Actually, I have a tree in my yard that split. I wonder if a wool sweater/cozy would help protect it during these cold months. I need a tree doctor’s advice on that!

Christmas Yarn Bomb – Pillar Cozies

While my sister was out of town I decided to yarn bomb her house. She was going to be out of town quite a bit during the holiday season and I didn’t want her neighbors to feel slighted that she didn’t do her part to bring holiday cheer to the neighborhood!

I initially put buttons on them to secure them to the pillars but they were spaced to far apart. I ended up tying sections together between the buttons on one and sewing the other one closed.

The red and white one was supposed to look like a candy cane but I’m afraid I didn’t make it slanted enough.

I used the largest knitting needles I had, which are about size 16 (12 mm).
