Howie Woo

My sister’s friend Andrea spotted some amazing yarnbombing (knit graffiti) by Howie Woo, at the Davie Village community garden! It’s literally raining cats and dogs out here!

    • Andrea

      To make these, you’ll need crochet. Time to learn how to crochet! ;)

  • Wow, thanks so much for featuring the Cat & Dog Raindrops! I haven’t been downtown lately, so it’s a treat to see from your first photo that they’re still hangin’ in/up there :)

    I hope they bring smiles to Vancouverites & to our visiting guests! Thanks again :)

Giveaway: QWSTION Weekender Bag

Switzerland-based QWSTION have teamed up with fashion designer Julian Zigerli to produce a special version of their Weekender bag and they sent us one. The iridescent surface displays an array of colours when light shines directly at it. Note: We shot the image above with a flash, and the colours have not been manipulated. Have a look below to see what the bag looks like with the lights on.

There’s also a second set of straps so the bag can be worn over the shoulder or as a backpack. We have one of these special bags to give away to our readers so if you wanna snag it, leave a comment below and tell us the first place you’ll travel with it.
