Inspiration at Yarn Bombing

Yarn blasting Morris Arboretum Art installation
Yes, I had never heard of it either! I recently visited Morris Arboretum to see their yarn bombing installation on trees (and a few other places). I found it actually really inspiring, was not expecting that at all. Various trees were wrapped in large knitted or crocheted pieces of very colorful yarn creations. In the serene atmosphere of the arboretum it surely made an effect.

It wasn’t only trees, either, I thought the idea of wrapping the wooden doors in machine knit was also rather interesting! Who doesn’t want a door with a knit cover….? Some of the little bridges were also wrapped, all those little tiny spaces! And the Greek looking columns  next to the swan pond, I bet the swans thought it to be fascinating, too…

I found myself going around and around like a little kid. This might cause some inspirational pieces in my jewelry cYarn blasting Morris Arboretumreations!
