Yarn art in the city

Last weekend was White Night in Melbourne city. There were a number of cool things to go see around town when the sun went down, but I hate crowds so I didn’t venture in.IMG_2068That didn’t matter because some of the installations were still up around town during the week, and obviously I had to go check out this display of white lace.

The artist Annette Fitton, aka ‘Nini & Wink’. is responsible for the display of 21 trees. It was a solo undertaking. And then the mind boggles.

I was quite taken by this one.

… those bobbly things… they’re nups, (pronounced noups, like soup). I bow down to Nini & Wink, truly stunning, and very fancy, sophisticated yarn art.

I wonder if she has some well-dressed trees at home?
