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!

  • these are great. i want a couple to hang out on my balcony!

  • more reason to learn how to knit! what a gorgeous sight

    • 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 :)
