Yarn bombing might just be the coolest thing since sliced bread. I’m not kidding, I really think it’s cool. Now it may not be a crocheted afghan to keep, or a knitted hat to wear, but you can make a brand new custom creation for the world to see. Talk about a way to make our presence known guys! Whether you knit or crochet, you can participate in yarn bombing.
Now, it’s technically illegal, so don’t blame me if you get in trouble. But, the good news is, almost no one cares! Yarn bombing doesn’t actually hurt anything, unlike the spray paint that graffiti artists use.
Fiber arts deserve more attention. And yarn bombing shows just how talented we are. It takes talent to crochet around a tree and it looks super cool. People yarn bomb benches, fences, and sign posts too.
I have an idea. Yarn bomb your own yard to start! Maybe you could crochet around your mailbox. Just picture the look on your mailman’s face! And if no one knows you crochet, your neighbors will all wonder what is going on. Totally harmless 🙂

If you’re feeling adventurous, get a group of your knitting friends and come up with a plan. Maybe you could ask your local library if they would allow you to knit a sweater for a tree on their property – maybe it could help advertise for your knitting club. The possibilities are endless!
