Yarn Bombed Schwinn

Sounds odd yes? First, check out what it means if you don't know here and many graphic examples here.
My bike (Schwinn Legacy Cruiser) is done entirely with leftover stash yarn and crocheted by hand. Mostly done in sections and fitted and attached afterwards. The seat was the first thing done, then it just took off from there. I suppose some might say that this is not a true "bombing" in the sense that it was done to beautiful something plain such as a drab landscape like it's usually done. Honestly it was done out of boredom and me saying "I can do that!" and so I did. Will I ride it like this? You betcha! As soon as my aching back eases up.
Thanks for looking and each image will open up quite a bit larger if you choose to click on it. That's all for now.

Magically Delicious?

I think not. Anyhow, Happy St. Pat's Day to everyone!

May you live as long as you want, and never want as long as you live.

I've Created a Monster!

This was done without a pattern, yay me! I was looking through the patterns and diagrams I had collected and decided to just wing it and came up with this crazy little guy. He is only 4 and a half inches tall.

UPDATE: This handsome little guy has permanently attached itself to my Schwinn bicycle handles and become my "hood ornament" in my ongoing process of yarn bombing it. Photos to come soon...
