International Yarn Bombing Day

So today is International Yarn Bombing Day, in case you didn't already notice the title of this post. As I mentioned, I am definitely going to put a fancy little knit swatch on something today which I will eventually share photos of to prove I really did it. I thought I would share a few cute yarn bombing photos with you today!
This was actually in Cambridge, Ontario and I am kicking myself in the butt for not going to see it! I think my mind might have actually been blown out of my head if I saw this in person though so maybe it's a good thing I didn't. You can read more about this project here
This is actually a photo that I took last January on James Street in Hamilton. There was some pretty adorable yarn bombing hanging out there.

I will be sure to show you my yarn bombing triumph or tell you about my yarn bombing failure if I wimp out. Wish me luck!

  5. I love that bridge! It really lifts up your mood! And the small detail being the second yarn bombing is uplifting too!

  8. Awesome! When I visited Prague a couple of years ago all of the lamp posts had knitted coats in all different colours and patterns. I had no idea what was going on but I took loads of photos, they looked so pretty! Now I know what it was! Yarn Bombing! Thanks Elycia!

  9. That bridge thing is really cool, too bad I didn't go see it either (I'm also from Hamilton!). Good luck with your yarn bombing, make Hamilton a little brighter.

  10. Wowwwwwwwww! What an awesome idea! I'd love to see this...although I''d probably turn into a crazy lady and start hugging everything. What are you gonna 'bomb'?

  11. Ah I didn't know about this! I love yarn bombing. Brighton has a lot of knitters/crocheters so there is often bits all over the city which I love. Last year I took part in a charity yarn bombing event - where we covered an entire double decker bus in stitched together squares! Was pretty amazing. Raised lots of money for a local charity and the squares were taken apart and turned into blankets to send to orphaned children in Africa!

  13. There's something really heart-warming about seeing people 'subversively' making things actually look more colorful and unique without inflicting any damage on the actual structures. I LOVE the idea of yarn bombing and can't wait to see what you got up to! Jen x
