Berlin street art – thanks Meg!

Imagine riding your bike around Berlin in a vaguely lost manner and coming across this:

Which is exactly what Princess Meg did (she of great cookie fame)- and was kind enough to think of me and send me these photos of such wonderfulness draped around the street. Here is a close up:

  1. that settles next vacation is going to be to that city.
    the city of yarn shrubs…excellent

  2. Awesome crochet project…

  3. That’s wonderful! A crochet tree…
    Say, perhaps we could make an urban art guerilla type thing out of this?

  4. Just one of the many reasons why I love that city.

  5. Hey, that’s a labour of love! Love the tree.
    And I love the cooking site! Look out, I am going to submit something -sans illustration I am afraid.

  6. makes me proud to be of mostly german descent. (along with run lola run & various other things which do not involve a certain mr. hasselhoff)
    -beautiful, creative, clever, unexpected, sweet, punk.
    gotta love it!

  7. Huh.
    that’s all I can say.


  8. I thought the same thing Marrije, the most perfect kind of guerilla art, that takes something ugly and banal and makes it lovely. This is quite inventive!

  9. That is wonderful. I’d love to stumble it now that we are in the midst of dreary winter weather here.

    What a wonderful thing to find!

  12. That’s a great labour of love! Love the cooking site!

  13. For some reason that reminds me of shoe trees. There are so many shoe trees in Boston – I love spotting new ones around the city.
    I sent that to my friend who knits (alas, I am not one of the lucky knitting breed. I tried. I really did, but I ended up making this wonky scarf that was so misshapen that I even felt bad wearing it.)…so back to the friend who knits, she thought it was just awesome. So thanks for sharing, Claire 🙂

  14. must comment on the fabulous knitted street art…everything about it is perfect, but I find the leaves particularly intriguing. Thank you for sharing this.

  15. That’s just lovely! It reminds me of the lamp posts on our Main Street at Christmas Time. We have a very artsy sort of town and the establishments hire local artists to decorate the lamp posts with elaborate homemade ornaments and things. The pet shop’s lamp post looked like a Christmas Tree, except it was made with leashes and balls and doggie treats. =)

  16. I’m crazy about that vine. Who made it? I just cannot get over it.
    PS Your blog is a joy!

    i have a hunch that the knitted tree is made by a toronto artist, germaine koh, who i think relocated to berlin for a while. she does a lot of knitting related art, including installations where people basically watch her knit!
