Undercover Shenanigans In Brigg!

 We popped into Brigg yesterday, (I love it there, it's a lovely place full of character and great independent shops)and we were greeted by such a cheerful riot of colour and fun!

I am unable to knit or crochet and so seeing such amazing skill blew my socks off!

The high-street had been yarn-bombed and the local businesses were immortalised and celebrated in crochet!

You could see how much joy these creations gave to the passers-by and I often had to queue to take a photo because they were so popular!

Each one made me smile: the intricately detailed Walkers crisp packet, the elegantly manicured hand and the very flexible yoga instructor (who is a friend of mine from The Steel Rooms, a wonderful gallery, workshop centre, cafe and gift shop.)

Someone's photo-bombed the yarn-bomb!

I think that I managed to photograph them all, and if the talented folk who created this happen to read this blog post, then I would like to congratulate you. 

Your generosity, humour and crafts-personship are a testament to what can be achieved when folks get together and collaborate.

The identities of the yarn-bombers are obviously unknown, but if you are inspired by this, there is a friendly Face Book group called 'Undercover Yarners' who love sharing ideas about crochet and community.

Wishing you all a colourful weekend chucks X
