Today I was called by r4 Saturday live programme and talked very briefly about my yarn bombing escapades. I contacted them last week on twitter as they were briefly talking about it & this week a researcher rang and said would I do a quick phone out about what I do.

I think it went well but I daren't listen to it. It'll probably be on iplayer though.

Are you one of the yarn bombers round my way?

<whispers> Surrey?

IHeartKingThistle Sat 24-Nov-12 15:45:14

I adore the concept of yarn bombing!! Go Dilly!

I wonder if there's a group in Devon?

My boys and I still mourn the passing of the yarn bombing in Cambridge. Brightened up some dull bike racks no end.

I's love to do that, but my knitting skills are not that great ! good on you x

DillyTante Tue 27-Nov-12 22:08:39

Thanks for all the replies.

Lulu, honestly you just need to be able to knit or crochet a square or a rectangle. It's a perfect base for a yarn bomb.

Lulumama Wed 28-Nov-12 16:17:01

that I can do and goiging to sort out a place for it with my fellow knitters x

DillyTante Wed 28-Nov-12 21:25:59

Yay! Let me know if you need any tips smile

Oh I'm sad to have missed this! Wonder if it's on iplayer or sommat.

DillyTante Fri 30-Nov-12 07:41:17

Should still be on iplayer till tomorrow.

RatherBeOnThePiste Fri 30-Nov-12 08:08:08

Excellent, thanks Dilly, I shall away there today. My one attempt at yarn bombing is on my profile, my crochet isn't fab so I had to go for humour over quantity!

Why has yarn bombing stopped in Cambridge? sad

I want to do a Christmas thing in my road, but it will need to be small smile

Doilooklikeatourist Fri 30-Nov-12 10:48:29

Oh I heard you !
I love Radio 4 on Saturday morning .

RatherBeOnThePiste Fri 30-Nov-12 10:49:37

I can't find it! Well I have found radio 4 Saturday live, put it on and somehow missed you sad

DillyTante Fri 30-Nov-12 22:06:47

That looks great Pistey! How did you attach them?

DillyTante Fri 30-Nov-12 22:09:44

Btw Pistey there is a snowflake pattern on my blog which might make a good yarn bomb. V quick to make.

RatherBeOnThePiste Sat 01-Dec-12 08:15:48

With super strength double sided Sellotape, they lasted for a couple of days grin Thank you, I will have a go at your snowflake, I also saw your Christmas tree light one that I thought I would try for my road, well possibly just one lamp post!

DillyTante Sat 01-Dec-12 15:15:08

You're the second person to mention the fairy lights this week but that post was from last year. Where did you see it?

RatherBeOnThePiste Mon 03-Dec-12 08:50:16

I was hunting for simple Christmas crochet ideas and was looking through images on google, and I saw them, then found the way to your blog. I cannot remember what I had typed in at the point of finding though because I was having a lovely mooch smile

NeitherShreddedNorSmug Thu 06-Dec-12 03:38:25

Oh I love the fairly lights. I'm going to have a go tomorrow smile.
