Yarn Bombing

Written by

The sun is shining, the weather is sweet and everyone at Marriner Yarns has got that summer feeling.

The chances are you’re just like us; having a few family and friends over for a BBQ, doing a spot of gardening or simply working on that tan.¬†However for some of you out there, the Great British Heat Wave is seen as a chance to demonstrate your knitting prowess in it’s most exhibitionist and ninja stealth form – yarn bombing!

We never fail to be amazed at the talent, hard work and gumption that has gone into some of the fabulous examples that have been spotted throughout the country. We’ve marvelled at the explosion of colour outside Cheltenham Hospital and been spellbound at the 12ft (yes 12ft!) crocheted spider’s web, under a Bristol railway bridge. Even today we’ve been astounded by the emergence of a huge knitted guitar in Surrey!
We’re sure you’ll agree that this craze, also known as ‘guerilla knitting’, is a fantastic way to raise a smile not to mention knit something that’s truly memorable.

So the question is, where will the next yarn bomb land?

Whatever you’re up to this summer, have a great time.

Happy knitting!
