Yarn Bombing


Yay! My status as an official stalker has been confirmed! Deadly Knitshade is my new girl-crush. Yarn bombing makes me want to guffaw out loud, snigger into my coffee and shout from the hilltops “LOOK A KNITTED TEA COSY ON A BOLLARD. HOW BLOODY FUNNY IS THAT?!”. Don’t tell me you don’t know what it is – GOOGLE IT FOOLS! IT’LL CHANGE YOUR LIFE!

Several time wasters have prevented me in the past from achieving my full potential. Perhaps a doctorate or an OBE could have been on the cards if I hadn’t wasted so much time looking at YouTube clips. But this – this may even prevent me from finding the time to get dressed or feed myself something that doesn’t come straight out of a Coco Pops box. I’ve already “wasted” half a morning looking at Guerilla Knitting photos and wishing I were 1000 times faster at knitting so I could yarn storm.

After much horrific time wasting contemplation, I have decided on my top three places to devastate with my knitted creations:

1. Somewhere pretentious. I’m thinking Emperor’s New Clothes. I’m thinking maybe the Tate circa 1999. Yes, perhaps a lovely crochet blanket for Tracey Emin’s Bed. Sorry LouBug, but I’m going to have to sacrifice the blanket (see photo above) you created for my equally lovely second born son and borrow your Tardis to go back in time. In your face Turner prize winner!

2. Second on the list…who needs cheering up? Decision made – yarn bomb Jeremy Paxman’s head with a balaclava! Ok, purists, I know it isn’t in the covert spirit of the game (unless I wore a balaclava as well? Ok, getting ahead of myself now). Worth it though, no?

3. Knitted wheel clamps for that one off Top Gear. Nuff said.

    Love this post! Very funny. It’s so easy to become so impassioned about yarn bombing! Haha I feel the same way. Can’t wait to see what you come up with.
