Yarn bombs that is.
It’s only 23 days to International Yarn Bombing Day – do you have your arsenal ready?
What is a yarn bomb, you ask?
It’s where a regular person (or kinda regular person) prettifies the neighborhood by adding a bit of yarn here and there!
It’s a form of urban art (AKA graffiti). It’s also referred to as guerilla knitting.
Is this the most fun you’ve ever heard of?
Yarn bombing has been slowly creeping into my life. My first experience with it was on 4th street in Berkeley last summer. I saw this pole adorned with knitting – I loved it and had a photo taken of me and the pole. Together.
I have yet to see a whole covered tree, but people are doing it – look!
