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 !
A bargain…. especially the unexpected ones……….such as this:
This little beauty is a huge spool of silky soft crochet thread. I found this in a local thrift store. These poor people did not know the value of this because it had a $2.00 sticker on it.
I felt a bit guilty…it is a charitable thrift store…so when I got to the counter I said…do you know what this is actually worth? They looked at me with a quizzical look…..um…well…no. I said…well in the future I’d put a higher tag on it. 🙂 I tried to give them more but they would only take $2.oo…oh well….. 😉
It pays to nose in your local thrift shops ! I can’t wait to find a good project for this beautiful spool………
With crochet thread !!! Check out these two ideas I saw…..
First of all :
Heart Covered Soap by Red Heart made with Aunt Lydia’s Crochet Thread. I really like this idea…would make a great gift along with some handmade washcloths and such…..
I came across this picture…stones covered in crochet motifs in a cool looking wooden door frame. What an awesome idea………
As you can see, I am in a “get inspired” mode…. 😉
