Yarn Bombing!

Thanks to Berg for the tip to this fabulous new knit bomb interpretation! See so many doilies at thrift stores. Maybe I should do my tree in the back yard for the garden tour. That would shake a few people up.

The story goes that 1000 blankets were expected at this yarnbombing event in Helsinki, Finland, but ended up with 7800 and used only about half the pile. After the yarnbombing event all the blankets were donated to the safe house movement.

Yarn Bombing happens worldwide to anything at any given time....wonderful colorful art.
