The Yarnbomb Columbia project was installed a couple of weeks ago. Those two blocks of Main Street are beautiful right now, and if you want to see pictures of the whole thing please take a look at this public Facebook page Yarnbombing of Columbia.
I personally knitted a tree cover, a parking meter cover, and bench backs for the Sweet Cream ice cream shop. Altogether, it was 6 months of effort for me. You can click each picture below to see a full-size version.
It was fun to have complete creative freedom. It was fun to make public art like this and then install it, seeing the finished product and knowing that people are enjoying it. I got to make new friends and be more involved in my community. And I have a LOT of leftover acrylic yarn in beautiful colors – I see a new throw in my future!
I love them all, but my favorite is the tree cover!!!!
Thank you! It was so much fun as I only planned each section as I got to it.
