U is for URBAN KNITTING (aka YARN BOMBING)

Urban Knitting seems to have started in about 2007 and it is creating of graffiti in public places with knitting items. This is a blog post that needs to be more pictoral than written. Yarn bombings and urban happen all over the world and the next INTERNATIONAL YARNBOMBING DAY is JUNE 11, 2011, so be prepared. There is a group for this on RAVELRY International Yarnbombing

LOOK BELOW AND SEE URBAN KNITTING FOR YOURSELF:




And more:



Even more:



This last one was in Vienna so it is truly an international movement. Get ready for June 11, 2011 and look for yarn bombs in your town. True pirates would yarn bomb waterfront towns, watch out Newport.

  3. That is so cool! I don't like knitting but I certainly admire those who do it well like these artistic knitters who make it into an artform. One question. What happens when it rains?

  6. What happens when it rains? Nothing, it usually just dries out and is fine :) It doesn't get smelly either, just gradually fades out and deteorates, and that's when it gets cut down.
