Pimple on a Post

There are a few terribly bland streetscapes around Rockingham. No-one's to blame, really - I'm not into that sort of game. It's just that they're drab, have no shade, no colour. They're only thoroughfares, so nothing's to be expected, really.

But I see them as potential targets for a bit of brightening up, a bit of sneakery with the yarn graffiti.

So out came the circular needles and the op shop yarn scraps, and hey presto, a bit of silliness ensued.

This yarnbomb is a bit lost in the expanse of the drab streetscape, so it's not much more than a pimple on a post, but what the heck! Why not?!!

So many bollards in Rockingham, so much yarnbombing to do!


  1. This is a truly awesome idea! I want to follow your blog, but I can't find the follow button, so I'm bookmarking you instead. Look forward to seeing your work around town (I live in this area, too)!

  2. I must have taken the "follow" button off at some stage because, admittedly, this blog is a bit of an experiment and I never expected anyone to find it!

    Anyway, thanks for your comment and maybe we'll see some maker*land yarnbombs around the place too, one day!

  3. Maybe, it looks like fun! You should get an army together...
