I’m loving the pictures of the huge yarn bombing done by Knits for Life at the Old Navy flagship store in San Francisco. They covered an entire 1950 Chevy pickup truck in knitting, complete with zig-zag patterned bumper, tire cozies decorated with Nordic snowflakes and knit fuzzy dice hanging from the rearview mirror. The body of the truck is mostly done in red with the words “Together All Ways” (don’t ask me why it’s not “always”) stitched into one door.
This amazing feat took 35 hours to design and 45 hours to knit on a knitting machine. It had to be worked in 36-inch wide panels, so 60 hours went to assembly in the overnight hours when the store was closed.
As if that weren’t enough fun to get into, the team also yarn bombed Old Navy’s flagship store in New York City.
Both projects will be up through the end of the year and are just the thing to get you in the holiday — and knitting! — spirit.
