Friday Inspiration: Yarn Bombing

yarn bomb·ing
  1. the action or activity of covering objects or structures in public places with decorative knitted or crocheted material, as a form of street art.

I love looking at all the ways knitters and crocheters come up with to yarn bomb and my favorites are the ones that creatively come up with a way to fit the object being yarn bombed.  Some the best I've seen are made by sisters Lorna and Jill Watt.

Story Time is at the San Mateo Library - it cracks me up how they are from books!

Buttmunchers, in San Francisco.

And their Colossal brings a giant squid to downtown San Mateo, California.

This crocheted rainbow puddle is one of the best yarn bomb ideas I've seen!  It was created by Swedish artist Julia Riordan ....

.... who also crocheted this wonderful heart dispenser!

What better way to cover those ugly, random concrete posts than an R2D2 created by Sarah Rudder in Bellingham, Washington.

And if you've ever been to downtown Portland, Oregon, you've probably seen all the bronze statues.  This lucky little otter doesn't have to shiver through Portland's cold, damp winters any longer thanks to Jessica DeVries and Claudia Martinez.

Happy Creating!  Deborah
