Yarn Bombing

I just stumbled upon some yarn bombing pictures online…what a cool trend. Can you imagine stumbling upon some of these installations as you’re walking to work or driving around town? Wouldn’t it just brighten your day?

Here’s a “guerrilla crochet” project from Occidental Park in Seattle:

And here’s one from Denver. The City actually commissioned this installation to clean up the look of the construction site behind it:

An interesting website (and book) on yarn bombing is…wait for it…www.yarnbombing.com. I spent quite a bit of time browsing their pictures and am totally tempted by their book.

Cheers, Amy
