Foster City, California-based Jill Watt of the blog Dapper Toad collaborated with her sister Lorna of Knits For Life to create this amazing “Yarnbomb Squid Tree.” They covered a big Magnolia tree using four miles total of mostly blue yarn in San Mateo, California and made it look like a giant squid (complete with a very cool “trapped” crocheted goldfish). Lorna, an artist-in-residence for the Downtown San Mateo Association, wrote up a great post on how she and her sister conceived of, designed, and then created the “Yarnbomb Squid Tree.” Jill reports that it took 20 hours on a sweater machine to make enough to cover the tree and that it took them 14 hours to install it, in 33°C weather (via Sisters Knit an Amazing ‘Yarnbomb Squid Tree’ Using 4 Miles of Yarn)
