group show: knitty

It is winter in these here parts. Make and eat soup, catch up on television series, drink pots of tea, hunker down and watch the snow fall kind of winter. Perfect for knitting. And a knitting group show.

And I couldn’t have a knitting themed group show without showcasing some yarn bombing. Hopefully you have had the pleasure of coming across some yarn or knit bombing in your neck of the woods? It is just so delightful. Showcased below is the yarn bombing art of Magda Sayeg.

Finally I must post a photo of this lovely bike yarn bombed by its owner and written about on her blog. It is such a sweet lookin’ ride.
