My friend S. recently acquired a walker. Now a walker is a good and useful thing and its benefits are many, but it must be admitted that this particular walker was not all that exciting, aesthetically speaking. S. is a passionate, inspired woman. This walker was about as passionate and inspired as gruel.

Obviously it needed to be yarnbombed.

Consider it a collaborative effort. I did the actual crocheting, but E. and Suncat and I chose the yarns together. S. knew we were doing this—we got her informed permission before embarking on this project—but the details could still be a surprise.

Two fun yarns: the solid purple one on the horizontal bar has a sparkly metallic thread in it, while the one on the vertical bar mixes green and purple nicely.

As you may have guessed, S.’s favorite color is purple.

This was supposed to be a blue and purple yarn. Somehow all the purple avoided getting into this piece.
