Knit bombing

LOL.  Sorry, I think this is hysterical, and never actually heard of it.  I saw several trees waling the dogs, in Roma Norte, covered with crochet, and wondered, what the heck?  A colleague brought this up the other day and I connected it and was like, ohmygosh!  I got it! We have had a couple VERY deep posts lately, lol, an the one I thought would be cool and informative of ho it affects Mexico.  Without further due, here is an official definition…

Yarn bombing-  Web definitions -
Yarn bombing, yarnbombing, yarn storming, guerrilla knitting, urban knitting or graffiti knitting is a type of graffiti or street art that employs colourful displays of knitted or crocheted yarn or fibre rather than paint or chalk.

I love the site, instead of the band Twisted Sister, the site called Twisted Sifter (LOL)

Overall, I think this is hysterical.   I walked pat the first time I ever saw this on a tree and wondered, what the heck?  I loved that it was around a tree and just had ever seen this before, so I guess this was the attraction?  I had no idea bout any of it, but when it came up later just accidentally, I thought it was hysterical that it came up at all.

Something that has so many Pinterest sites and topics on Google, and even covered by Time Magazine?  I think nothing more is needed to be said  :)

  3. Howdy! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from
    an established blog. Is it hard to set up your own blog?
    I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick.
    I’m thinking about setting up my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any tips
    or suggestions? Appreciate it
