Yarn Bombing

What is Yarn Bombing? According to urbandictonary.com, Yarn Bombing is a type of graffiti or street art that employs colorful displays of knitted or crocheted cloth, rather than paint or chalk. While yarn installations--called yarn bombs or knit bombs--may last for years, they are considered non-permanent, and, unlike graffiti, can be easily removed if necessary. And it is something that is done world wide.

As you can see Yarn Bombing comes in many different shapes and sizes. People yarn bomb things such as buildings, bridges, fences, benches, and trees.

I just love how Yarn Bombing can brighten things up!

I wish I could be in Union Square this Sunday for the Big Yarn Bomb. Lion Brand Yarn is sponsoring a big yarn bomb in Union Square on August 30th, if you have a chance you should check it out, info can be found here.

It would be nice if I could find a yarn bombing project in the Northern California area, so if anyone has heard of one or is sponsoring one let me know!

Have a great week!
crochet on,
