bring on the storm

yarn bombing - graffiti knitting - 
guerilla knitting - yarn storming
 
I find this form of street art so intriguing & beautiful.  I love that they have coined the term yarn bombing or yarn storming to describe it...it makes me want to pull on a ski mask, some combat boots & hit the streets with my bag of yarn to do some serious knit tagging.  Because what's tougher than making the urban landscape around you beautiful...I can think of nothing.







For more inspiration & information on yarn bombing, check out the blog Yarn Bombing, written by two of the main players in the movement - Mandy Moore & Leanne Prain.  They also put out a book last year, no doubts it is going on my list of must-haves! 
If anyone in the Atlanta area wants to team up & do a little yarn storming let me know! ;) Happy weekend! ♥

  3. I'm in Atlanta, and I seriously want to do some yarn bombing! It's on my 2011 to-do list. I think Little Five Points would appreciate a little yarn love! Maybe even Atlantic Station :)
