Christmas Yarnbomb

When I first wrote about the Christmas Yarnbomb for the Memorial Garden in Belper it was good to find people who were willing to help. After my first post about the Christmas Yarnbomb I received comments and offers of help both on this blog and on my Facebook page.

Things then went a little quiet and I was hoping that this was because knitting needles and crochet hooks were busy. I started to knit some jumpers for trees and hoped that others would make things to be sewn onto these.

It is now with great relief that I am starting to get pictures of work in progress from other makers.

Snowflakes for Christmas yarnbombThese fantastic snowflakes have been crocheted by Joanne Clements. All the wonderful things Joanne makes and is interested in can be found on her website .

Most of the people who are helping with the Christmas Yarnbomb are local to Belper but not all as is the case with Joanne and another lady Jill. Jill lives in Australia and contacted me through Facebook. She is from Belper originally and wanted to be part of the yarnbomb. I have heard from her that she has sent some crocheted squares which is fantastic.

I have also had some photos of work that is going on in Belper. Here are some stars from Jenny and robins, owls and a snowman from Joy.

I have just realised that so far all the pictures are from people with names beginning with J . I am looking forward to Christmas Yarnbomb items from others with names starting with different letters.

There is still plenty of time for more knitters and crocheters to help with this Christmas Yarnbomb. If you would like to be part of what is going on please leave a comment on this blog or contact me through my Facebook page  or follow me on twitter @anneclarkHM I am planning to receive most items by November 17th to give me time for the final planning.

  1. I would like to get involved. I am not a particularly fast knitter, but loved the yarn bombing done in Belper previously. Can you send me any details that I may need.
