Have you heard of it? I’ll let the New York Times explain:
Sometimes called grandma graffiti, yarn bombing takes that most matronly craft (knitting) and that most maternal of gestures (wrapping something cold in a warm blanket) and transfers it to the concrete and steel wilds of the urban streetscape.
This from a NYT story about the world-wide phenomenon, which I have been following from the periphery as someone who just enjoy are in general. The photos of this stuff just make me happy – so much color and softness against a tough, concrete background. All the world’s a canvas, I suppose.

Thanks for stopping by!
