VW Yarnbombing

One of my favourite things about this year's festival.

Our local Heritage Building Society organised the loan of the beetle for us (hence the pink pigs in the windows!), and we invited the public to help keep it warm for the duration of the festival. Everyone was a bit shy in the beginning, so the babette blanket started things off, and then they all began to join in!

And the granny bunting I posted on flickr a while back was put to good use (you can see it on the tent above). A festival visitor commissioned me to make some, so I have granny triangles multiplying like crazy here!

Oh, that bunting is DELIGHTFUL! And yarn bombing is the best thing ever. If I was younger and more daring I would definately bomb my entire neighbourhood!
