I always found yarn bombing to be so crazy. My logic being - if you have that much time to knit or crochet a tree, you could've finished 3 sweaters! Seemed to me a waste of time and yarn.
But......the more I see it, I have come to love it. So much creativity. So much enjoyment. It beautifies the area, and makes a statement.
Although considered a form of graffiti, yarn is easily removed and can hardly be considered offensive. The amazing creativity on some of these examples is extraordinary - blows my mind!
And other vehicles:
Even a tank!
This fabulous 104-year-old yarn artist is simply amazing. Click on the picture for the full article.
And, all of these stunning trees:
The massive steps of the Helsinki Cathedral are spectacular - that took a LOT of work, and yarn..
Benches, London phone box, a whole house!!!
And, not to be left out........the loo!
What a fabulous creative, frivolous, fun way to bring artists, knitters, crocheters and innovative people together. Every town needs a little yarn love, don't you think?
