North Street Knitted Cycle Rack - photo by yo! hanna
Yesterday I was cycling in Southville when I saw my very first yarn bomb. I'd read about London guerilla knitters, who cover phone boxes and street furniture with knitted loveliness but never realised Bristol was in on it - I thought Banksy was our lot when it came to public art.
I didn't have my camera with me but tracked down the creator, Johanna who has a blog Twee as Volk, featuring her adventures. Johanna kindly allowed me to use her photographs here so thank you Johanna!
I love this limpet traffic light cover in Stokes Croft.

This cactus traffic bollard is brilliant, with little knitted spikes.

It so brightened my day yesterday and has made me even more determined to learn to knit. I'd love to go around Bristol under cover of darkness decorating the streets with stripes and polka dots.
