Yarn Bombing: My Favourite Article Of 2009
Last year, in the midst of my knitting crazed life, I was given an article that has made me view my craft quite differently. I was accustomed to knitting to keep PEOPLE warm, and show them I care. Every knitter I knew was knitting for people. Some knit for baby people, some knit for old people, some knit for homeless people, some knit for family and friends, and some knit for pets that they considered to be people.
I had never seen anything knit for a bus!
The article opened my eyes to the world of yarn bombing (knit graffiti), which is apparently a world wide movement dedicated to improving the urban landscape one stitch at a time.
People knit for trees….
and gas stations…
So….if you were a yarn bomber…..what would you bomb?
