Post Cosies and the Snuggliest Tree

Is that not the snuggliest tree you ever did see? And how about those little granny square post cosies!? So terribly cute!

We snapped these pictures while out and about in Bendigo today. The weather was chilly and the sky was grey but we couldn’t help but smile over these little pops of colourful yarn. Really, I challenge you to walk past a tree decorated with pretty crochet and not feel happy! Yarn bombing is wonderful.

I hope your weekend has been full of sweet moments and nice surprises. Wishing you a very colourful, snuggly, happy week ahead!

    Ah so cute! I’m glad the tree will be warm in the wintery weather, hehe.

    Wow this is amazing, gorgeous colours, I love the idea of yarn-bombing, we need more of it in the world, I’m sure it would make everyone happier if they were having a bad day and walked past this!!!

    I wouldn’t want to part with it when creating something like that but it looks great and to know so many people have appreciated it makes it seem all that much nicer. I haven’t seen anything like that before.

      Yes, I think I’d have a hard time parting with my masterpiece too! But I guess it’s worth it to bring a smile to people’s faces and add a little colour to the world! 🙂

    Today I walked past a bicycle just like that! Every inch of it was covered in colourful yarn, both in knitting and crochet.

      How lovely! There’s a little yarn bombed kids in one of the shop windows in our town. It’s adorable! I will have to share a picture some time.

    Makes me feel good about Bendigo. More power to the yarn bombers!

    Obviously the tree was feeling the cold too! Love this, so adorable.

    It looks soooo cozy! I would hug that tree too! It’s crazy to me just to hear that it’s chilly over there! I’m in Florida sweating beads the first step out of the door. I miss that weather 🙁

    I love yarnbombing! It always puts a huge smile on my face. I crochet so I’ve thought about it… but it would absolutely break my heart if someone took it down. These shots are great!

    Love the crochet design that looks like starfish anemones any idea where I could find that pattern?
