Yarn Bombs!

What happens when you get a whole bunch of kintters together who have extra yarn and a bit of free time?

Yarn Bomb!

Yarn bombing, yarnbombing, graffiti knitting or yarnstorming is a type of graffiti or street art that employs colorful displays of knitted or crocheted cloth rather than paint or chalk. While yarn installations – called yarn bombs or knit bombs – may last for years, they are considered non-permanent, and, unlike graffiti, can be easily removed if necessary. The practice is believed to have originated in the U.S. with Texas knitters trying to find a creative way to use their leftover and unfinished knitting projects, but it has since spread worldwide

And lo and behold, it happened here in Santa Cruz.

It is actually a pretty good sized tree.

I have to say, I think the idea is great. Non permanent, artistic, colorful, fun…. What’s not to love?

I sort of wish I had a front yard so that I could yard bomb my own trees!

Of course, I showed these photos to my niece Olivia (age 5) and she has now decided that she needs a scarf like the tree. I am trying to finish it for her before her birthday… wish me luck!
