Yarn Bombing

July 6, 2013 in art, street art by LP

Have you all heard of yarn bombing? Maybe heard of guerrilla knitting?  Graffiti knitting anyone?  I am sure you have all heard the three terms, but just in case….it is street art created with knitted or crocheted yarn.  And everything gets covered in yarn, from benches, to trees, to holes on the wall, to mailboxes, to cars, to bicycles, you name it, it will be covered with yarn. How cool and crazy is that? So, I just want to leave you with some colorful photos I got from the internet just to get you going. And yes, there is plenty of red in the photos.
