  1. Pom Pom Yarn Bomb

    Posted on

    It is Frome Festival which has been running for 14 years. There are hundreds of events and great atmosphere in the town.

    To mark this we decided to do a small amount of yarn bombing, mostly with pom poms.

    An unsuspecting bin got covered and some snails were recruited.

    I have wanted to crochet a skirt guard for my bike for ages and this gave me the impetus, you can find the pattern through my ravelry page.  It was a lot of fun and I added a seat and cross bar cover and then some snails crawled on....

     Elsewhere in the street there are snails on the drainpipe:
