  1. Oh I have been marvelling at this and think it's genius. And the wonderful thing is, you really DO feel like you have a head full of wool with a cold. Perfect blend of understanding your market, capitalising on the crafting trend and humour. C.x

  3. The artist is Magda Sayeg, a terrific yarnbomber who has done all sorts of stuff from covering Smart Cars to making this fun video. More about her: http://www.crochetconcupiscence.com/2011/12/how-magda-sayeg-approaches-her-crochet-art/

  6. It's so clever, isn't it? And every time I see it I have the imagined conversation in my head...

    'Oh, that's a pretty colour, what's that you're crocheting?'
    'Snot!'

    Oh dear, sorry...maybe it's only me!
