Baby Button’s first storm


The Serpentine Gallery, Hyde Park, London

Its been 2 months since the birth of my daughter, baby button and its been far too long between yarnstorms.  With International Yarnbombing Day and Stitch London’s Stitch Crawl approaching on the 11th June, I knew I had to get my creative knit on and create something to go alongside the flutterby’s that Stitch Londoners were busy creating in homes across the capital.

The recent sunshine and beautiful summer days encouraged me to create a cheeky chap chilling out in the sun, lying against a tree watching the flutterbys float all around him.

a saturday afternoon, surrounded by sunshine, butterflys and flowers, what more do you need?

It was just typical that baby button wasnt too impressed by my graffiti and decided that she’d had enough just as I was trying to sew my piece to the tree!  Possibly the youngest yarnstormer ever?

  1. How sweet … both baby button and her yarnstorm 🙂

  2. What a sweet little ‘cheeky chap’, shame baby button got bored!

  3. I know what you mean about babies stealing knitting time – Babybee is 3 months old now and I’ve barely had time to pick up the needles since she got here. But alas, you do have to start ’em young..

    LOVE the blue flowers!
