Yarn Bombing!

I have been interested in yarn bombing for quite a while now, and am fascinated with this 'graffiti' brightening up the urban landscape.

I have been knitting with looms and also taught myself how to crochet creating interesting textiles to 'adorn' the body. Usually knitting is associated with old grannies sitting in their rocking chairs knitting socks, hats, and cardies, but it needs to be revitalized by a youthful generation in new ways!  

Whilst doing some research on my Current Project where I'm knitting with coloured wire at the moment, i came across a blog called Street Art Utopia which is a great source of art work information, and has some great yarn bombing work!
