The pipes, the pipes are calling

So, we are almost finished decorating ‘the snug’ but we were not sure what to do with the two central heating pipes in the corner. (We couldn’t hide them in the wall cavity as there is already something else in there). They originally had an ugly white plastic cover on them which we didn’t want to put back.

Then I thought about yarn bombing.

We decided it would be a good idea to knit covers for the pipes. So that’s what I’m doing.

I don’t think it will be technically difficult but I’m still not sure how I’m going to knit over the three sets of clips which hold them to the wall. Here is what they look like. They are attached together and to the wall, so no room to wrap yarn around them. Suggestions welcome please!
