Yarn bomb anyone?

We are very excited to reveal that plans for Born to Knit are underway for 2012!  This doesn’t mean that you should start sending us your stuff just yet, because we still need to confirm the requirements with our country offices who will receive your knitted goods later this year.  We will keep you posted and as soon as details are confirmed, we’ll let you know!

In the meantime (and to get your ‘knitting fix’) we thought we would let you know what our friends at the Yarn Corner are up to, to get you into the knitting groove for 2012!

On January 21st – Melbourne’s City Square will be transformed into a woollen wonderland.  Yarn will be wrapped around all sorts of things  until the end of February and you can even get in on the action!

If you can already knit, you can help out with the actual installation on Saturday 21st January from 9am through until 5pm.

If you want to know how to knit, you can take part in the workshops available on Sunday 22nd January from 11am through until 2pm.  Bookings are required, so please email to reserve your spot.

Otherwise, you can just head on down to the City Square before the end of February to see a prominent part of Melbourne covered in yarn!

Apologies to our bloggers that aren’t in Melbourne – but we’ll be happy to share pictures with you online afterwards!

To get you excited about yarn bombing, here are some other examples of this unique form of street art.


These cute little guys were knitted some toasty jumpers by the Twilight Taggers!
