Yarn bombing is simply the art and craft of covering inanimate objects in knitting or crochet. You can sew your knitted pieces to poles or you can attach it with cable ties.
Knitting and crochet has had a renaissance in popularity recently. I’ve even spotted people knitting at the pub and on the train.
A lot of yarn bombing happens at night. You can yarn bomb at night with a light on your head or a pocket torch. If you’re headed to a rave party afterward you could crack open your glow stick.
Or you can yarn bomb by the pale yellow of street lights and the headlights of passing cars and buses.
You won’t miss any street crossings in the night where yarn bombers have been at work.
Be careful not to put your wooly scarf down when yarn bombers are near or it could get stitched to a pole.
Often the little things such as a miniature hat on the top of a post can have a great impact because the finer details always make any craft project.The great thing about yarn bombing is that you can yarn bomb anything.
Yarn bombing is a great subject for fun photography with it’s vibrancy and texture.
