As part of Wool Week last week John Lewis set up one of their windows as a plainly decorated room and invited various knitters and crocheters to take part in a living display. Passers by could watch them sitting knitting and crocheting, which must have been fun to see as well as being a bit bizarre for both sides.
The yarny creatives gradually yarn bombed the area (silly term isn’t it? Decorated seems more apt.) I watched it all develop through photos during the week on Twitter which can be an excellent news-service, you often find out about events long before seeing them elsewhere.
I stopped to see it before meeting Emma on Sunday and took so many photos because I found that every time you looked you noticed more woolly items! I found it genuinely inspiring and particularly loved the flowers in the vases, the cat and the covered pink chair. Somebody’s moving pretty fast this week – I think he’s worried he might be covered with crochet or knitting if he stays still for long.
Such a neat idea!!!
Thanks for sharing. Great pictures. I wonder how many knitting / crochet hours that all represents.
Great pics, thanks for sharing, sounds like you had a ball!
Oh wow, what a thrill to experience all that – thanks so much for showing us your lovely pics Rachel – I love the little cat but wonder why they didn’t give him a warm rug to lie on? Joy x
It is wonderful. Thanks for sharing so many lovely pictures, I didn’t get to see it, so really enjoyed looking at the details :D
fab ! thanks
I absolutely love this – it makes me want to crochet a jug of flowers!
Wow did they go town. Did I ever tell you I worked in the haberdashery dept of a John Lewis in Cambridge! Second best dreamy job.
Brilliant! Well done John Lewis.
