BAC Yarnbomb Manitout Springs, CO

 

A group of us decided to re-purpose an old yarnbomb that we took down. The Business of Arts Center in Manitou Springs, CO requested some work on their site. Our fearless group leader mapped out a plan and a group of us sewed squares together. The “color wheel” of sorts went on the stairs while the multicolored squares cozied some trees. It took a group of four two days to put them all together. Thankfully all the squares were knit/crocheted
ahead of time!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.

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!
