Sarah Rudder created the ultimate yarnbomb with her R2-D2 which she knit and placed on a concrete traffic barrier in Bellingham, WA. She used 1200 yards of yarn to create the 23″ tall, 56″ diameter astromech bollard cozy. Once in place the reactions of passersby was as expected:
Photo opportunity! You can see the type of bollard that was covered up in the background here.
Of course she took R2 back with her at the end of the day, as otherwise he would quickly end up as someone’s (amazing) souvenir. So maybe if you’re around Bellingham you’ll see R2 out again. Incredible work Sarah.
