A yarny gate installation…

I have spent a lot of my time recently walking my dogs across the field that is behind our house. 

I used to do this often when I worked less, so to be able to have space to do this again has been refreshing.  However, this has been bothering me…

This gate opens onto a very busy road.  You can just about see that some kind soul has taken a sharpie pen to ask that folk shut the gate…but, it was still bothering me. 

It bothered me for two reasons.  The first, the gate is still left open and the second reason, the sharpie pen instruction just didn’t look pretty! 

So, I got out my stash and my hook

and began  hooking a simple but very happy double crochet striped affair.

 I added  a sweet little sewn request

 

and a cute little ladybird

Then I headed off with a pocket full of yarn and a darning needle to complete this yarny gate installation.

I hope so much that this sign makes people smile and that it survives for a little while before someone takes it down.

  1. That is awesome. I hope they appreciate the little lady bug and keep the gate shut.
    Even though I have to say, I live in a pretty nice place, but we also have gates that needs to be kept shut. Only the electric gate that shuts itself is closed, the rest left open. Maybe I should follow your example and also put a little note on the gates. 🙂 Even if it only helps to get people to smile at least. 🙂
