This looks brilliant. I am wondering how you came up with the idea. Thanks for sharing. Herb pot is looking healthy.

ab fab! so lovely and summery!

ps can you give us overseas people an addy for the yarnbombing so that we can send you our triangles, otherwise the post takes ages sometimes and they wont get there in time? cheers krissie @everyday things


I absolutely love your crochet projects, they are all oh so pretty and inspiring. I honestly think you should write a book, with your talent and detail for instructions, it would be a smash hit!!

I love your yarn color selections and the details you add to make your projects pop. I love the bee button on this, it adds just the right whimsy!


Oh how I needed that! It is SPECTACULAR!!

Michaelle Causley

I just made one of these!! Love it! Used a milk carton. Thank you for sharing xx xx xx


So cute, thanks for sharing


Anyone out there know an equivalent to Rico creative cotton in New Zealand? I like the look this yarn gives- less fluff.


Have you tried Elann.com ? They are based in Canada. I've used their "Sonata". Very nice colors as well :)


omgoodness i always have these soups i'm so going to make some of these, thank you so much for sharing x

You asked about cotton yarn in the U.S. ... I like to use Peaches & Creme...

Recycling can be such colourful fun!!

Great idea! Unfortunately here in Spain we can only buy ready cut herbs from the market, none in the supermarkets, but some of the garden centres sell little pots of growing herbs. I will have to adapt a bit to the sizes but its do-able. Thanks for the inspiration!


vedry cute and I love the bee, I am like that I have a ton of buttons and don't use them very often but I have started to add them to my projects. In the US I like to use Egyptian cotton yarn it is soft and sturdy and has a lot fo bright colors. But my fav yarn shop went out of business so I have to find it online. I also like Omega Cotton :) great idea about putting the herbs in this container.
