I have mentioned Yarn Bombing before and thought I would share some more with everyone. It is so cool and fun to use of crochet or knit pieces to cover an object, transforming it from a piece of urban blah to WOW!

Bali does quite a bit of yarn bombing and I loved her post where she made little sweaters for rubber ducks and sent them down a river. I would have loved to see it in person!

Is yarn bombing legal? Well it kind of varies where you are and what you cover. Some places might consider it littering or graffiti, but the fad is catching on:

I think in my searching, yarn bombing is moving from graffiti to being considered how it was intended - Art.

Go out and make some art today! :)
