Attended a workshop today adorably called, ‘knit knot nature’ 😁
I didn’t know, but ‘yarn bombing’ is quite polular and almost overnight, knitting and chrotchet enthusiasts dress up tree trunks, poles, rocks and fire hydrants (😁) to give the city a cute warm look. They also use wool variations on twigs and branches to make decorative items for the home. I tried my hand at one of these and realised that I have ten thumbs 😬😂
These are like art installations and also serve to keep people’s love for their craft alive. It is something like using walls as canvas, which has become so popular these days.
he natural argument would be, “Why don’t they make sweaters for the poor instead of making coverings for things that don’t need them?” It would be a valid point. 🙏… One that I have no answer for.
I’ve seen photographs of elephants wearing hand knitted blankets instead of the usual checkered ones…I do feel people’s love for their passion is leaving their homes and moving on to streets where they can pass on their individual joy to hundreds of others. 😊
