Yarn Bombing - The New Graffiti

Yarn Bombing  (<--click to read article)

It is self-explantory.  I wish I had had the time to take pictures of a couple other bizarre things happening in the Burlington area.

If you read the comments, I think the culprit is the person who said the leg warmers are crocheted and not knitted.  What do you think?

Happy Knitting!


  1. I think it's kind of sad that there was a commenter who didn't understand why it is most likely a female doing it. I also think some people have way too much time on their hands.

  2. Covering things with knitted or crocheted items is a lot less destructive than using spray paint and it's more fun. Of course I like even better the idea of making hats, mittens and socks, putting them in individual plastic bags and leaving them in conspicuous places for the homeless. But the world needs a bit of inanity in these troubled times. I would tell the writer of this article, "lighten up." Renate

  3. Poor reporter! She uses knitting and crocheting interchangeably - what a fool! LOL

  5. People do use the terms interchangeably; but I'm not sure it's that big of a deal in conversation. However, if you're blogging about it, then you probably should take time to know what you're blogging about.

    I agree with Renate, would rather see something of value done with the energy that went into the yarn bombing.


  6. Ha, ha, I noticed that my comment from last week made no sense. Maybe I should learn to proofread. What I meant to say was:

    I noticed the interchange of knitting and crocheting to. How rude. I've gotten over my condescension towards crochet, but I still think people could learn that there's a difference.

    I was knitting at a swim meet last week, and an acquaintance came up and said, "Oh, you're just crocheting away." I didn't bother to correct her, so I guess I'm part of the problem.
