I saw this wooly handrail at Manchester Craft & Design Centre the other week – an installation by ArtYarn. Wondering what the knit-masters had planned next I delved deeper into the world of pass slipped stitch over.

Over this Bank Holiday weekend (Sunday 2nd of May, 2010) as part of Salford’s Sounds From The Other City music festival they’ll be undertaking a spot of Yarn Bombing.

Yarn Bombing you ask? Well basically think wooly graffiti (like this) which will be installed in and around the festival site. Surely worth a look? And if you get inspired ArtYarn are back at the Ministry of Craft later next month with a Knit 123 course – perfect for beginners.
