Yummy yarn bombing

Standard

On our way to visit friends on the beautiful island of Barra we stopped off in Oban (where we were catching the ferry from) and had a wander around. We were walking from the car park towards the town and as we came round a corner we suddenly saw this…

There was a local artist who had a tiny studio surrounded by all this amazing mosaic work.

She was also the source of the yarn bombing. She told us it had started with these posts – the original paint was chipping off and looking very ugly so she decided to make them some covers to make them look more attractive.

It grew from there and she had ended up surrounding her little patch with all this lovely colour.

She only yarn bombed close to her studio so that she could maintain them fairly easily and mend any that need it. It was a delightful and unexpected surprise!
