New yarn-bomb

1 11 2012

My first rainbow yarn-bomb was installed exactly one year ago today.
It was so vibrant when first put up.

Time and weather have not been kind to it; it has required a few repairs over the year, mine and others.

Thus, I decided to replace it – I personally don’t think it’s right to impose craft on the public space without being responsible for its aging.

I pulled the first one down yesterday (before the rain). It was so dirty and had a spidery kind of resident; and the colour was so faded.

The new yarn-bomb has been crocheted instead of knitted – it took at the most a quarter of the time!

This time I didn’t get all stealth about the installation: instead of getting up at dawn, I just did it around lunch time, knowing that the local council actually support this activity (within reason).

And it’s vibrant again!

I hope the school-kidsters like it.
