Well, I was in town the other day and what do you know, the library had been yarn bombed!
Knitting and crochet have made it to the big time around here!
It spread out on to the footpath and into the trees too.
There was a lot of crafty action going into this project, many many hours me thinks.
There has been a bit of controversy surrounding this yarn bombing actually. The local paper was documenting a bit of an argument between the local ladies of the Hastings Community House who planned the yarny action, and a local council member who wanted to get people from another town in to yarn bomb Hastings. I don't really know why he didn't support the locals to do their own yarn bombing.
Needless to say, the local ladies were not impressed with this ! Westernport ladies are quite capable of doing their own crafty thing I think!
(Having said that, I hope this installation was the work of the Hastings ladies! I'm not sure whose work it is, and am just assuming the Community House are responsible!)
I think they did a great job, it certainly brightened up this end of the main street.
I loved the grannified posts, lots of granny goodness here!
Check out this happy face, very cute!
Anyway, it was nice to see yarn bombing in my local town! Well done ladies!
It really brightened my day and put a smile on my face (and lots of other people too!!)
Have a great day!
