YARN BOMBING..

...I know I'd never heard of it either. It involves wrapping crocheted pieces of wool around objects in this case trees. 
It's all part of the wonderful Wanstead Art Trail and this particular yarn bombing event was the brainchild of Syd from the pet shop in the High Street. Click on this link to see how she wrapped a bicycle it's brilliant...whatever next though..

  1. Looks very pretty on the tree but the weather will soon ruin it. Takes ages making a big piece of crochet work, seems a pity to leave it to nature.

  3. I've seen it done in parks here. They don't seem to be up too long. A few days and then whoever did it takes it down again.
