YarnBombing: Re-knitting the urban fabric…
ok – I promise to ease up on crochet puns! Yarn Bombing has become a phenomenon in the deeply secretive underworld of rebel knitters. Spun out in 2005 in Vancouver by designers Mandy Moore and Leanne Prain, the site weaves wimsical urban images of “knit graffiti.” Counter-culture couture! Double-knit bravado!
A post last month featured a parking meter wooly in east Vancouver.
Every successful blog finds its niche and sometimes a book deal! Congratulations to Mandy & Leanne – their book Yarn Bombing is being launched tomorrow!
