So, our first, little yarnbomb.
We did it after the pub quiz last night (we won the quiz by the way, thought you would like to know that – £8 each -Thanks!)
It was quite tricky doing it in the dark at midnight but not many people were about and I’d had a few gin and tonics so it seemed appropriate. It was quite good fun and a little bit naughty. I had got a bit of a design plan in my head but mostly we just tied them on and hoped for the best. I had wanted to put the swags in the trees in a Christmas decoration/bunting stylee but the tree was far taller than I imagined and even tall person couldn’t quite reach up there.
Things I have learned. 1) Take a non-crunchy bag with you. Fumbling about in a crunchy bag attracts attention. 2) Having someone with you is essential as you can pretend you are having a good old snog if someone comes along! 3) Check your route for dog poo. 4) Don’t worry about a design, just bung it all on. 5) Be ready to do another one because its fun and addictive!
Many thanks to the tall person Mr Redde Man 🙂
We are going back later to take better photographs and tie on two flowers I found in the bottom of the crunchy bag that got missed. I hope no one notices. We are really pleased, we made a tiny corner of Countesthorpe prettier, we were a tiny bit subversive and we mostly hope we make someone smile.
