Yarn Bombing

I’m in the midst of a big knitting project in my sparetime at the moment so I’m just going nuts for everything knitted. That’s why I’m a HUGE fan of yarn bombing, street art done in yarn. How can this not put a smile on your face? Unfortunately I don’t know who did these (except for the motorcycle done by Kate Corbin) as I guess it’s kinda like graffiti. But Google the term and a world of colour and yarn will greet you!

Remember when I saw an entire bike knitted over in NY. Now I see little knitted pieces everywhere. In Boston there were little chiles knitted on a sign. They make me so happy when I see them.
