Yarn Bombing

I imagine this is what a Truffula Tree would look like in real life

Hello there You, Me, and Charlie! Do you know about yarn bombing? If you have never heard of it, I can guarantee you will love it!

Yarn bombing, or knit graffiti, is a type of street art that has emerged within the last few years and is currently popping up in cities all over the world.

It may be something as simple as decorating a pole or parking meter,or dressing up a statue. It may be on a pretty large scale, such as a bus, group of trees, or even a tank. It may serve to brighten and spice up ordinary places like the subway or a telephone booth.

While obviously not permanent, yarn bombing is becoming a more frequent form of street art, done by people from anonymous individuals to organized groups. Whoever thinks that knitting and crocheting is only for little old ladies obviously does not know just how radical fiber artists can be!

Just keep your eyes peeled, because you never know where and when you might see something yarn bombed!
