I’ve been enthralled and inspired by the work of guerilla knitters ever since I saw exquisite yarn-bombing in Matakana, New Zealand. One of Kingaroy’s Tractor Tattoo sideshows that we visited on the weekend was a yarn-bombed tractor.
I’ve been privileged to meet some fantastic fibre artists recently and with their encouragement, I bought some wool and a crochet hook to begin something for our housebus. Seeing the variety of work on this yarn-bombed tractor has inspired me to start hooking my own creation together (once I can find the instruction book that is temporarily misplaced).
Alice the Yarn-Bombed Tractor is such a great example of local art in a quirky application. I hope Kingaroy keeps this tractor on display for future visitors to its town!
