I've been yarn bombing for a long time now and wanted to do something different. After I saw a photo of a rubber duckie with a crochet jacket on it, I felt inspired to create the "Float Away Duck" project.



Basically this was a project for me to crochet twenty little ducks with jackets and set them off down the Yarra River in Melbourne and photograph them for my yarn bombing group Twilight Taggers.



The event was held on the weekend. Check out my blog for a post on how it went down:

I am obviously not in the know about this as "yarn bombing" is a new term/experience to me... but this is fantastic. I have an odd obsession with rubber ducks.. and I can't even imagine how this would have made me smile if I stumbled upon this in real life. Awesome

Gorgeous, I wish I was in Melbourne to see this. Makes me wonder if there are any yarn bombers up here in Queensland.

Yarn bombing has been around for a few years but it's becoming more and more popular, especially since the publication of the first book on it.

It was lovely to see random people stop and watch us float the ducks down the river.

You could try putting the word around on facebook or on blogs to see if anyone in QLD does it. I personally know of only two other people that do it in Melbourne and they do it solo, like me.
