I have been fascinated by the rise in Yarn bombing. a novel I read a few years ago set in Bryon Bay and a group of 'after dark yarn bombers" because it was illegal. But today it seems to be popping up everywhere or even requested e.g. the Trees in City Square at Christmas
|The garden when we moved in|
We want to cover the Water Tank but that would be best tried by Celia with painting I think!!
|The garden has greened up!|
I started to just knit squares, and the measurements once I'd done a few, was just casting on till the needle was 2/3 full and the knitted length of the needles was the right width.
Sue Murdoch had recently learned to crochet so I asked her to do some pieces which were great.
She also did some leaves of various scale and design.

The stretch of the pieces made them grip well. Found it a little tiring holding them up as I stitched and clambering the ladder with care as I sewed!
|I added this piece of wool as a caterpillar !|
|I used actual branches and covered them in a wool blend fabric|
|Checking out how they hang.|

|Leaves need to be set so they hung OK|
