UK Knitting Extravaganza !

From the Facebook page of Steetcolor Art.  A knitting extravaganza in the UK.  To quote the site:

“Yarnbombing teaches us to think really big – why not knit a house – a real house ? This house was knitted by Knitting Site for The London Architecture Biennale in June 2006. It was knitted on site with all recycled materials , plastic , garbage bags , rope. ”

Very cool !

Olympic Rings Crochet Granny Squares

 Done by Australian artist Guy Whitby. It can be found on his Facebook page here, along with some other fantastic graphic art he has created. Hopefully the Olympic Committee won’t get their tails in a bunch over it 😉 Beautiful work Guy!  Guy is also the author of the Granny Square Art – The Great Wave which I previously blogged about.  In  fact he has a whole section of Granny Square art on his Facebook page which you should check out.  You can find it here.


To my craft-y and art /street art loving friends….by now you have heard of yarnbombing….but have you heard of Eyebombing. ?

Some very neat pics on this site…makes you want to run out and get some googly eyes yourself ! 😉

Many thanks to website badge , who pointed this site out in a comment on her FB page.  If you are on Facebook, you may want to “hook up” and join her.
