" YARN BOMBING : spotted in MILAN and BAMBERG "

I have heard of Yarn bombing but have never really seen one.
So happy to have spotted them here in Bamberg, Germany and right at the center of their local market,
where a knitting/crochet store is located just steps away.
I have actually tried my hand in knitting, but I just couldn't get the patterns right,
the simplest I could do was a straight color pattern and that was only for beginners.
Ugh! I guess, I don't really have that enough patience when it comes to it. ^0^

My sister though is the opposite of me,
She could master the art of it by just watching a few you tube tutorials,
plus a very informative 1-euro magazine (with DVD) that we bought from Madrid. * what a steal!*
We would've bought the complete set had it been available for sale overseas.

She bought a hook and some yarns from the local market and could instantly whip up a coaster, mittens, a beanie and a dream catcher inspired crochet.
Very envious of her as I am writing this ... ^0^

Back to Bamberg though, It was Christmas time when we were there, so hanging this ornamental tree was just about right.

I think this chair is one of a kind.

And so, I thought my yarn bombing days were over after that trip in Bamberg.

When lo and behold!, When we were in Milan, Italy.
we spotted a dozen of trees lined up at the back street of our Hotel.

We stayed somewhere near Porta Romana area,
it was a bit far and away from the main sights like the Duomo, but we loved it,
mainly because of the quiet neighborhood and the fact that it's close to the Metro station.

On the day of our check-in, we had to wait for an hour or so before we could get to our rooms.
Not sure where to head first, we started taking a stroll at Via Vittorio Salmini .
There was nothing worth mentioning and we were literally just killing time, had it not been for these Yarn-ed trees.
Whoever made these, really took a lot of time and effort to get this beautifully done.

Now, If we could only incorporate these creative art works in my country...
Oh, but that's just wishful thinking. ^-^

Here's my series: Enjoy!

Just pretty to look at. ^0^

This tree wasn't yarn inspired but the handiwork was again commendable.
I am at one point so tempted to plucked out those pebbles. hehe.

and why not paint it with Fleurs inspired.
