I came across this wallpaper the other day. It's a yarn car. I'm guessing it was one of those art car shows. It's very interesting. It took me awhile staring at it to figure it out. Just thought I'd share.

He used acrylic so the rain does not affect it and the yarn is positioned over velcro so it is changeable if he decides he wants to do it differently. I met him at the art car parade in Austin last year and I can't remember where he is from. I am in Houston and my DW is an art car artist. One of our daily driving cars is a painted Honda CRV.

My blog is not strictly knitting, but there are occasional WIP updates and frustration or bragging rants as I am a new knitter.

Wouldn't that be dangerous, that much yarn and that many knitters?
