We spent last week in the far north of Finland, 120 miles within the arctic circle: A fab and magical holiday – proper photos to follow – but it blew my mind to be miles away from anywhere, in a winter wonderland deep with thick, pure white snow, and somebody still had the guts, gall, initiative to guerrilla yarn bomb…that’s not a tree with a strange disease in the picture.
I’m loving the way this Street Art is developing, mutating different yarn crafts, particularly the use of embroidery.
But not only is it a new take on embroidery, it’s the re-imagining of the holding structure: Anything with a grid is fair game.

It’s a new way of looking at our black and white world…and seeing potential.

Such joy! I love this❤️
I thought you would! Have since spotted another version by Missoni going horizontally and woven around the wire like basket weave – also highly effective. Big love xxx
Even in the middle of Finland, You can enjoy for example reindeer rides and much more. My newest post verifies it.
Happy and safe travels.
Thank you – we did have the most amazing time, more photos to follow, though I know they won’t be as good as yours! xxx
