Brightening Our World With Yarn!

We all know, yarn makes everything better.  Yarn brightens our lives and our world.  Many of you who have visited us at the Lion Brand Yarn Studio might have noticed the bike rack in front of our store . . .

or our door handles:

A few days ago, spring was finally in the air, the trees were starting to bud, and the city landscape around our us was calling out for a little brightening up.  So, we figured, the pipes and the lamp post deserved a new spring wardrobe.

Yarn just makes everything more cheerful!

    I love these!! They make me want to knit coverings for everything that can be covered (which is everything)! :)

    I'm just curious how you put the covers over these things? Hard to slip a cover over a light pole! I crocheted covers for my daughter's crutches after knee surgery - she loved them and I loved making them.

    <em>Patty says: They are knit flat and then seamed up the side!

    Wonderful! The colors are amazingly vibrant. I'll bet people can't help but smile when they see them.

    FYI - There is an amazing book on yarn bombing by Leanne Prain and Mandy Moore.
    Yarn Bombing: The Art of Crochet and Knit Graffiti.
