Once upon a time I lived in New York City where the lights are bright, the streets are busy, and the yarn bombing is awesome. As a knitter, I can’t help but love yarn bombing. Colorful and fun, it makes me grin every time I see a bike rack or store handle or stop sign covered in yarn. Add a little yarn bombing to your life!

You can go big! Man I bet that was a lot of work! But it’s so awesome! An octopus tree! I want that in my local park.

Or you could go small

You could yarn bomb a bike rack – this one looks pretty modern and artsy, am I right?

Or a bike (how beautiful is that? No, really. I want that for my bike. I mean, first I have to get a bike. But then I want that for my bike!)

And phone booths on either side of the pond love to be yarn bombed
