22 Yarnbombing Examples to Make You Smile

It doesn’t surprise me that a lot of yarnbombing happens in the northwest; I am from Seattle and it’s a crazy bunch up there (in a good way).  I love yarnbombing not just because it’s art in public and brings attention to fiber arts and knitting but because it’s just plain fun.  I’ve never walked down the street and seen yarnbombing, but I hope to one day.  It makes people think and take notice of the little things, don’t you think?  Here’s a great post from Apartment Therapy on the movement; but before you visit there take a peek through the slideshow to see some beautiful examples of yarnbombing.

    The amount of time spent on the tree trunk alone must have taken months let alone a whole tree/bus…as joyfull as it looks and feel makes me realize how bad the recession is where there are very few jobs but plenty of time to do things like this which makes me pretty sad also wasted money.

  2. Betty says:

    Beautifying the landscape is NEVER a waste of money! Yarn Bombings were taking place before the recession! Knitting is always a good way to pass the time – whether you’re employed or un-employed. I LOVE the creativity and the use of yarn! Thanks for sharing!

    I agree….beautifying the landscape is NEVER a waste of money or time! Anyone who has never used their creativity has no idea the value of it and are to be pitied. Knitting isn’t for everyone: Not everyone can do it for one thing. I do more knitting when I am working 50 hours per weeks than I do any other time as I find it totally relaxes me and unstresses me. Lovely artwork! Thank you for sharing.

    I want directions on how to cover various items. I’d like to do this at our apartments in Chattanooga. What a hoot! and perhaps other places…shhhhhh.

    We’ve had a few yarn bombs here in Memphis, Tennessee and Central Arkansas, though nothing as elaborate as the pictures here! Thanks for sharing them.

    Yarn bombing is no more a waste than any other public art! And yes, knitting is a stress relief – and a good and productive use of the time in between times when otherwise you would likely be waiting for something or other.
