>Yarn Bombing Basics & Pics
Ok, I did a post the other day about my opinions on the pros and cons of yarn bombing. (click here for post) Some made comments that they didn’t know what it was, so I thought I would shed some light on the subject.
According to wikipedia – yarn bombing is a type of graffiti or street art that employs colorful displays of knitted or crocheted cloth rather than paint or chalk. (click here for full wikipedia article)
Basically it’s yarn graffitti. Here’s some pics for those that have never seen any of it. You should be able to click on the pic to go to the source.
The only one I actually like is the flowers on the fence.
Brings life to the inner city.
So, if you didn’t know what yarn bombing was, now what do you think? I still look at all these pics and think of all the things I could make with all that yarn, but that’s just me. I don’t have money to throw away. There is also much controversy because some say that because it is done in the dark, without permission, it is illegal. I would suggest that if you plan on doing it, you at least call the town/city to make sure they don’t care. (just my opinion)
