54 The Yarnvent Calendar 2013 - 1st-24th December 2013

Hey Shadows!

I cannot believe we are in the third year of The Yarnvent Calendar!!!

The premise of Yarnvent is to knit a Christmas yarnbomb for your town every day from 1st to 24th December!

People can find them and give them as gifts or take them home to keep!

 Perhaps small tree decorations every day? Perhaps some small decorations and larger ones at the weekend? It's your choice!...

From wreaths, angels, stockings and tree skirts to baubles, mince pies, xmas puddings and snowmen - the possibilities are endless!

Lets all get together and spread a little Xmas cheer this year!

Please invite as many guests as you would like to take part!

Remember to post pictures and ideas on or (@Yarnvent) so we can all share our wonderful creations!

Please check back over the next 24 days to see my progress, there are lots more photos on my facebook page of my creations!

52 The Fluffle Bug - 4th October 2013

Hey shadows,

It's been an awful long time since I last posted!

Sorry about that, you see, it's not been my fault!

I've been unable to create any yarn bombs as all my wool keeps going missing! 

Finally, I found out why........... The Fluffle Bug!

Fluffle Bugs are little creatures that hide in the shadows, with round orange eyes that glow brighter than the sun with a fiery glow!

They love all things creative, and sparkly and cute! They are mischievous wee creatures and like to keep things for themselves as collectables!

Their lairs are full of odd buttons, balls of yarn, sequins, old pennies, missing earrings, ribbons, lollipop get the idea!

You can imagine my surprise when I found one nestled away in my stash of wool! the poor wee thing got such a fright that it ran into the shadows and scurried all the way home to its magnificent topiary palace!

Thankfully, I managed to get a few pictures! 

Who knows? Maybe we will see more Fluffle Bugs around our homes? 

Anyway, now that my stash has been returned and I've checked everything is there I'm off to focus on my very exciting Halloween projects and also to make a start on The Yarnvent Calendar 2013!

See you all soon,

Shadow, Sunshine, Love,

51 Fairy Tale Collection: Snow White Apple and Golden Egg - 19th February 2013

Hey shadows,

As some of you may know, I am a wee tiny bit obsessed with fairy tales!

So, for my new project, I am going to spend the next year or so making fairy tale inspired yarnbombs!

I will call this project: The Fairy Tale Collection.

Sometimes they will be small, sometimes they will be big, sometimes they may be a group of items and sometimes just a wee baby yarnbomb on its own!

I will continue with other regular projects throughout the year also!

I hope you all enjoy the first part of the collection: Snow Whites forbidden apple and the Golden Gooses golden egg!

I'm rather proud of my wee apple and the golden egg allowed me to try using new yarn!

Enjoy and let me know what you think!

Shadow, Sunshine, Love.

Hey Guys!

Sorry it's been sooo long but I have been a busy wee Shadow in my non knitting life and I have also been focusing on knitting away for the second Yarnvent Calendar!!! I can't beleive it's finally here!

This year, I will be doing something a little bit different for The Yarnvent Calendar! 2012 will be the year of the wreath!

After the success of my 3 wreath yarnbombs for the first Yarnvent Calendar, I have had many requests asking for one so that people can put them up this year! So, I have decided to make 24 wreath's this year!
