Mackay City Library has the most amazing magical tree outside near their swings. I love looking at the tree when its bear so to see it with knitted art work its spectacular. Last time we went to Mackay Library there was a few branches covered in the Knitting pieces, when we went to Mackay Artspace Gallery there were many more branches covered……
Geurrilla Knitting Project
Spotlight even jumped on board with the Mackay Geurrilla Knitting Project. If you collected your card from Mackay Artspace Gallery you were able to get a discount on Wool/Knitting needles etc. It started in the first half of the year and finished by July 24. Yet many others must be joining in on the Geurrilla craze because tagging the tree is gaining momentum. It really does look good – and like the idea behind of the Knitting pieces covering grey :: the project does make one smile!
Mackay Tree Flower Power ::
Asking for the Guerrilla Knitting Project to be left to enjoy!
Love the bright colours of this one!
Amazing how well they fit the tree branches
Wondering how its attached so well?
Do they add it to the tree and then sew it together…
or does it have Velco added to it?

The History And The Beginning Of Yarn Bombing ::
It started back in 2004 and has gone world wide. It’s a form of Graffiti yet its not damaging a building nor is it permanent! There are many names for the Art ::
Its main aim is to create colour to a space that is otherwise grey. And is even a way for Artists to express themselves through the many different designs.
There are many groups and now many reasons why Geurrilla (or Guerrilla – there are two ways to spell it!) Knitting is popping up in various places. From making a statement, to advertising a certain theme to even celebrating anniversaries of certain places/people! I like the beauty of the colours that add to the beauty of a tree!
This is what the tree looks like before the added Geurrilla Knitting Projects were added!
A few Snakes were on the Tree ~
Now there are more splashes of colour!
