Crochet tractor / Tractor de ganchillo / Tracteur en crochet / Tractor de crochet

In English:

Where: In Finland in Joroinen. Joroinen is small municipality and the distance from Helsinki is 302 km / 188 mi. There are three main things from which Joroinen is known in Finland. 1. Music Festivals in July. 2. It is called with humor “Paris de Savonia”. Savonia is the name of province where it is situated. 3. Finntriathlon Joroinen. Why it is called “Paris de Savonia”. Because there are many old manors on this area and people used to speak Swedish and French. Probably the most famous person who have visited in “Paris de Savonia”, in the 1980s was President of the French Republic Valéry Giscard d’Estaing.

Where, more closely: In Joroinen at the service station called Jari-Pekka. This service station chain has exceptional idea, because they do not sell alcohol and tobacco.

Blog text: The mother of the idea is the owner of the handicraft shop Riitta-Piikka Ky. The crocheted tractor is old Massey Ferguson and it is totally covered by more than 1000 different crochets, which are made by the “group of knitting addicts”. Now it time to check my photos, because they tell much more than simple words.

En español:

Dónde: En Finlandia en Joroinen. Joroinen es un pequeño municipio con la distancia de 302 km / 188 millas entre Helsinki y Joroinen. Hay tres cosas principales de las que se conoce Joroinen en Finlandia.1. Los festivales de música en julio. 2. Se le llama Joroinen con humor “Paris de Savonia”. Savonia es el nombre de la provincia donde ello está ubicado. ¿Por qué se le llama “Paris de Savonia”? 3. Finntriathlon Joroinen. Debido a que hay muchos viejos mansiónes en esta área y la gente solia hablar sueco y francés. Probablemente el más famoso persona que ha visitado en “Paris de Savonia”, en la década de 1980, fue el Presidente de la República Francesa, Valéry Giscard d’Estaing.

Dónde, detalladamente: En Joroinen en la estación de servicio (gasolinera) llamado Jari-Pekka. Esta cadena de estaciones de servicio tiene una idea excepcional, ya que no venden alcohol y ni tabaco.

Texto de blog: La madre de la idea es el propietario de la tienda de artesanía Riitta-Piikka Ky . El tractor de ganchillo es un viejo Massey Ferguson y está totalmente cubierto por más de 1000 ganchillos diferentes, que se hicieron por la “grupo de adictos de costura”. Ahora es el momento de para echar un vistazo a mis fotos, porque dicen mucho más que mis palabras simples.

En francais:

Où: En Finlande, en Joroinen. Joroinen est une petite municipalité et sa distance de Helsinki est de 302 km / 188 mi. Il y a trois choses principales à partir de laquelle Joroinen est connu en Finlande. 1. Festivals de musique en Juillet. 2. Il est appelé avec humour “Paris de Savonie”. Savonia est le nom de la province où il est situé. 3. Finntriathlon Joroinen Pourquoi est-il appelé “Paris de Savonie”? Parce qu’il ya beaucoup de vieux manoirs sur cette région et les gens ont habitué à parler suédois et français. Probablement le plus célèbre personne qui a visité dans «Paris de Savonie”, dans les années 1980 a été le président de la République française Valéry Giscard d’Estaing.

Où, de plus près: Dans Joroinen à la station de service appelé Jari-Pekka. Cette chaîne de stations-service a idée exceptionnelle, parce qu’ils ne vendent pas d’alcool et non plus tabac.

Blog texte: La mère de l’idée est la patronne du propriétaire de la boutique d’artisanat Riitta-Piikka Ky . Le tracteur est crocheté vieux Massey Ferguson et il est totalement couvert par plus de 1000 crochets différents, qui sont faites par le “groupe des mordu à tricoter”. Maintenant, le temps de vérifier mes photos, car ils disent beaucoup plus que des mots simples.

Em português:

Onde, com mais detalhes: Em Joroinen na estação de serviço (posto de gasolina) chamado Jari-Pekka. Esta cadeia estação de serviço tem uma ideia excepcional, porque eles näo vendem nem álcool e nem tabaco.

  17. It’s really amazing! You automatically start to smile!🙂 Such a wonderful looking and exceptional tractor! These many different colours, patterns and ideas to decorate all parts of the vehicle are fantastic. I admire how the talented lady always found a way to create her crochet work in a way that her parts give the desired effect to the very special part of the tractor. Somehow it supports the original look, so to say.
    If you look at the tyres, for example, you notice that her work is very sculptural and supports the impression to have this enormous tyre tread. Or the covering of the steering wheel, the speedometer as well as the kind of fuel gauge! And all the other details which are so nice to see: the green little dragon on the gear shift stick, the lovely owl as well as the rather soft covering of the seat! I love it!😀

    It was such a pleasure to have a look at all these details and to see such a unusual looking and unique tractor! Thanks for telling about it and taking all these pictures!

    Have a nice week, Matti!

  31. Hi Matti. What a lot of work has gone into this, and a lot of thought and planning, such as with the crocheted text. In English we call this ‘yarn bombing’, and I often see photos of things like telephone boxes and street lamps on Facebook. The only yarn bombing I’ve ever seen in person was at our local arts centre, in the café – very colourful, but all the work of one person. This team of ‘knitting addicts’ have really pulled out all stops! Wishing you a happy weekend.

  40. Such a delightful post with plenty of brilliant and vibrant colours!Astonishing handicraft work,fabulous patterns!They are all impressively displayed!It’s a pity though that nowadays machines replace “hands”,but the work made by hand is always most exceptional and the items last much longer.Have a wonderful week ahead🙂 Doda

    • Hello Doda.

      So kind comment. Thank You. You are that machines replace hands. I am glad that in many places yet today handcrafts are appreciated and done locally. One nice example is, that Bobbin Lace is some parts popular and this is proved that in a small town called Rauma there is every summer Bobbin Lace festivities which las one week.

      Have a great new week!

        Have a brilliant spring day🙂

    • Hello Miriam.

      I am very glad that You understand the value of things, which people make by using hands. This was one example how people can affect to their environment. Thank You. Sometimes hobby takes over all in one’s life. One lady has made 450 crochets. I was lucky to visit her exhibition and to shoot photos from her incredible skillfully made lace doilies.

      Hooked on lace.

      I appreciate Your comment very highly.

      Happy weekend.
