MAILBOX YARN BOMB!!

For this project I wanted to use yarns of ย different weights so I could use up some of my stash. I used several basic stitches but nothing too difficult or over challenging,

This project was to practice different ways of doing the same stitches.

One thing I took from this project is that the hook needs to glide off the yarn, it is not fun fighting with the yarn.

One of the yarns got snagged so many times by my hook it took all of my resolve to not call it quits.

I want to start experimenting with other types of hooks. I know with thread I don’t have that problem, but when it comes to yarn I have had that problem several times.

I wonder if they make hooks for specific yarns? I guess not, but I don’t know. Plastic hooks for my big projects are a joy to work with, I just might check to see if they have smaller plastic hooks.

Okay so here is the Yarn bomb…

  5. I will have to check my “hook stash”. It seems to me I have some really old plastic ones that are smaller that were DH’s mom’s. Gorgeous bomb!!!!!

  6. Very pretty! We don’t have mailboxes here in the UK. Just a letterbox (=hole with flap) in the front door. I read some analysis of hook shapes once and some hooks are more pointy and some have narrower throats it is worth working out what works best for you. I think metal hooks slip through yarn most easily.

  7. Several years ago, while at a conference in Denver, I ran across a construction site that hundreds of feet of flowers knitted down the chain link fence. Beautiful!
