on the other side…

Just a quick picturesque update on the window yarn bombing. Somehow I am not as quick as I thought, slowed down by all sorts of things, visitors staying, possible bronchitis in combination with stiff neck, children refusing both to cook or going to nursery by themselves,….

Anyway, there is still lots to do but this is how far I got:Vase 01

Vase 02

Vase 03

Vase 04

Vase 05

I put the vase up first and left it empty for a couple of days so people passing and eventually noticing it could wonder what on earth that thing would mean.

The initial plan was to add one or two flowers each day but as I said, I am producing them much slower and I am nowhere near the end. There is still lots of space for more….

And as my daughter suggested, there should also be a bee and maybe a butterfly. I really like that idea and will definitely add them.

Some of the flower pattern I found at oddknits, others are variations of something that I had seen in a book ages ago.

I also want to pick up crochet again and add some crocheted flowers, so far only some of the stems and leaves are. I kind of used the tutorial at the twisted yarn but without actually knowing English crochet vocabulary … so I might have gotten it totally wrong. They still look like leaves though.

I am very pleased with it so far, and I hope it cheers up people who pass, especially those who continuously mistake our house for the dentist next door ๐Ÿ™‚

but considering the slow pace I wonder if I will ever get to do the two other, much bigger, windows.

  1. Wow, this is gorgeous! You definitely win the yarn-bombing prize. I agree with your daughter, especially about the butterfly. This will make passers-by smile (thus showing off their newly filled/cleaned/corrected teeth.)

    PS: Please buy the house next door to mine. And yarn-bomb it all over.

    • Thank you. A village full of yarn bombed houses would certainly look lovely. And my husband would love to live next to a brewery. And I guess even the twins and my behaving-like-twins could then exchange strategies of how to get back attention from knitting neglecting mothers ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Danke. Vor allem das Fenster zu putzen hat lange gedauert ๐Ÿ™‚ Wegen des Sicherheitsgitters hat das noch nie wer gemacht und durch die Staebe war das auch aufwaendig. Und bitter noetig….
