yarnbombing a Fiat 500

Yes yes yes YESSSSSSSSS, I did crochet and knit a car ! 🙂
Yarnbombing it inside and outside (yeah, just in case any of you would have asked “what about inside of the car ? I did it !) 🙂
So it’s been now 2 years I’ve discovered Yarnbombing and I love it.
After a bike and then a camera, and then another bike, and several other little things, here is my last creation : a FIAT 500 !
(this post was at first published on my photographer blog, in July 2014) – you can see my former yarnbombing projects here
🙂
If you are, just like me, a little bit of a geek, here are some statistics :
– Length of string knitted : 21 km (13 miles)
– Amount of skeins : about 185 (50 grams each)
– Amount of time spent (knitting, taking photos, adjusting, sewing, and mesuring) : about 400 hours. I’ve started in early December 2013, and finished just today (27th of July), and needed several breaks because of :
—> amount of tendinitis I was very closed to suffer from : 3 almost 4 🙂
– Sponsor and partnership for this : none….
Which is actually quite a good thing, because now I know which French yarn I just don’t want to buy anymore, regarding the quality of what I’ve been knitting, cheap price and cheap yarn, but still…. I’m glad I’m “only” knitting on objects and not for people… yeah yeah, you may know which brand I’m talking about…
But anyway, if you’re a company and you are interested in using this knitted thing for a FIAT 500, please contact me ! 🙂
and so… now, you want to see it, right ???  🙂 🙂 🙂  HERE IT IS 🙂
Stripes stripes stripes, and white stripes most of all 🙂 Sometimes with a cat, with a rubber measure tape ducky, and sometimes even with marshmallow bear because I’ve needed a lot of patience to finalise this 🙂
 And then, I had the idea to knit a copyright thing instead of a licence plate 🙂

And then it was time for a fitting test…
🙂

and that’s when I’ve met a gorilla 😀
(and of course, I wanted to knit him a bikini top) 🙂

What would you dream to see knitted?

Would you like to join me for some silly knitting project ?
