Yarnbombing at the Threshold Festival

Over the past three weeks I’ve been busy knitting bumblebees, leaves and piece of tree trunk for an installation at the Threshold Festival in Liverpool.

I belong to a knitting & craft group The Twisted Stitchers, part of the Iron Maidens Women’s Institute. We’ve all been grafting, and knitting/crocheting like dervishes.

This is my contribution:

We met up yesterday to put the installation up, outside the Elevator Bar & Venue on Jamaica Street, it took us three hours to sort everything but we’re pretty proud of it:

HUMBLE PIE: My new blog site is experiencing Justin Bieber technical problems this weekend, this is why I’m back here with old faithful – for one (or two) days only…

    Your bumblebee pictures are better than the traditional tabloid picture of a lamb gamboling….can summer be far away now! (Yes, it can. Just opened the curtains: it’s snowing.) Sure festival goers will love them
