A Hungarian artist who goes by the name Babukatorium spent three months creating this awesomely intricate piece of guerilla knitting aka yarnbombing. The colouful crocheted piece is composed of 247 round spiderwebs in 13 colours. It took the artist three days to affix her beautiful creation to this tree, which is located somewhere in Veszprém, Hungary.
Babukatorium was inspired to create the piece after watching a performance of Shakespeare’s play A Midsummer Night’s Dream:
She said: ‘I’m obsessed with spiderwebs and rainbows and so when I saw this tree after the performance I thought it would be perfect for yarnbombing.
'I used a lot of yarn and attached it with rainbow ribbons. At the end I was exhausted and surprised because I didn’t think I would be able to complete it. I was also surprised because people love it, and come to visit the tree just to see the work.’
Just when I thought I was done… Currently 29 feet long or 841 square feet, incorporates almost 80 jumbo skeins of @redheartyarns #SuperSaver #yarn and weighs nearly 35 pounds. (Needs to be 32.8 feet long to set a new record for largest #GrannySquare.)
