A yarn from Adelaide

We were walking along a main street in Adelaide minding our business when we came across street posts and trees sporting winter finery.

It is called Yarn Bombing and although we did not see anymore there is more of it around the streets of Adelaide and Port Adelaide.

I took some crochet lap rugs to the charity shop a few years back and now I regret it. Trees get cold too.

A baby boy is missing his ‘blanky’.

Hiding from the traffic wardens.

Thinner trees need to be warmest.

So if you want to join in and get more inspiration, just Google or Yahoo Yarn Bombing and grab some ideas.

    What a coincidence! Take a look at my latest post on Beautiful Helsinki ( there is a link on Bagni di Lucca and Beyond ) to see the knitted tree cosies in Helsinki right now.

    How nice! I wonder how long the councils will leave them up though?

    I love urban surprises like that! I wish we had a garden with trees like that 🙂
