Welcome to my blog

This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

Yarn bombing on Day 2 of my Thames walk


Yarn bombing is a form of street art or knitting graffiti. I have seen it in different parts of the world but on Day 2 of my Thames walk I spotted these trees which had been bombed.























A more sophisticated piece of fair isle knitting adorned this hand rail.

  4. I have heard of this, and your pictures made me wonder anew: they must pre-knit most of it and then close it up? They sure can't be doing the entire thing while standing there, than they? :-)

  7. I've never heard of such a thing, but this is awesome! Looks like the trees are all wearing 80s legwarmers. :)

  13. Yes, I have seen it here too, don't know what to think of it. Nature is nature and doesn't need anything added to it. Especially not a knitted branch. But who am I?
