Yarn Bomb ~ City Square

Image

City Square is right in the centre of Melbourne.

For the third summer in a row Yarn Corner, in conjunction with the City of Melbourne, have yarn bombed all the trees in City Square ~ this year in all the gorgeous colours of the rainbow. It’s by far the biggest yarn bomb I’ve seen, with the installation in itself being an amazing feat, with elevated work platforms needed to sew the “bombs” up to 6 metres high.

The trees are either knit or crochet, or a combination of both. I tried to calculate the hours of work that this would have taken in total. It would easily be over a 1,000 ~ probably more like 2,000 hours! For anyone in Melbourne who wants to take a look, I believe they will be there for the next month, as long as nobody decides to steal anything and make a blanket for themselves!

Yes, one of these trees is mine (I’ve kept that rather quiet, haven’t I)? I’ve posted it as the first picture, as there are a lot of pictures ~ I didn’t want to miss anyone. Needless to say, I don’t think I’ll be crocheting anything in orange for a good long while. 🙂
