Follow Up: The Fine Art of Yarn Bombing

Earlier this month, I did a post about yarn bombing when I saw it for the first time at a local street fair. Lo and behold, this pastime has made national news in Time Magazine.

You can see more worldwide yarn bombing artistry on the Time.com website.
Here are a few pictures from the same link.

Filip: You're right, there are lots of pink. Maybe to make it really stand out.

Rainfield61: Yes, makes everything more pleasant to look at and not so bland.

Sailor: I think the yarn companies are happy.

Life Ramblings: I agree, but I wonder how long it took to knit that one.

Yogi: Maybe you can start one in your area. ;)
