Yarn Bomb Victoria!

Improving the Urban Landscape
one stitch at a time!
(Except this one is at the beach, so not purely urban.)
Just before Christmas I took off to Victoria to visit friends for the weekend. After a lovely coffee at Ogden Point with my friend Kelly (after a lovely breakfast with the Morley-Brucker family! Oh how I love this vacation thing!), I found this bee-yooo-ti-ful yarnbomb on the beach at Dallas Road. Oh Victoria, I really do miss you!

One of the coolest yarn bombs I'd ever seen with my own eyes. Kelly had never heard of yarnbombing, but had seen one before so she was also quite happy to have stumbled across this little gem. I'm sure if I had been able to spend more time in Victoria I would have found them everywhere, as it seems like a very Victoria thing to do.



  1. So I take it that someone sat there for several hours stitching it around that--mooring? How long do you suppose it would take to do that? Nice find!

  2. Usually the crocheting or knitting takes place at home and is just stitched on at the end. But there is a new thing called yarn wrapping, that must be done all in one place. This is a little one, probably 15 minutes tops? But I've never actually done one. I wish I liked knitting! I'll be all over this!

  3. What a find. It never occurred to me to look on the beach.

  4. I think it's a pretty old one, but I bet it's still down there, Kate!

  5. Hi!
    This is my yarn bomb! I always wanted to do a dock ring after I saw the woman from do one.
    I cannot express to all of you how much your comments about this piece mean to me. Thank you so much.
    If you want to see anything else I have done, they are all at
    Again, you are all awesome. Thank you.

  6. Heyyyy!! Congratulations on such a neat Yarnbomb! I will certainly be checking out your link! Thanks again!
