Yarn Bombing!

Some of you may be familiar with the term “yarn bombing” and some may not. Yarn bombing is when talented, guerrilla knitters from around the world attach their masterpieces to found objects for us all to enjoy…objects like trees, cars, street signs, and poles. I was just in Oyster Bay, Long Island and instantly beamed as I drove down main street and discovered every single tree had been yarn bombed. It’s like the trees were getting ready for winter and were proudly sporting their new winter knits.  Check out all the cool yarn bombing going on in the world…
