Bombin’ Some Yarn

I just discovered what yarn bombing is from my coolest-ever-mother-in-law.  As described in the new book, Yarn Bombing: The Book, “knit graffiti is an international guerilla movement that started underground and is now embraced by crochet and knitting artists of all ages, nationalities, and genders.”  Beginners and seasoned knitters secretly “donate” a knitted creation in public spaces.

I am so inspired and excited by this idea!  Do you think that pink flower in this photo is real?

I hit the farmer’s market this morning with the boys, my mom and sister and they helped me secretly drop off my first “donation.”

International Yarn Bombing Day is this Saturday, June 11th.  So now it’s your chance to join in on the fun!  Simply knit or crochet anything you’d like and tag a public space with your knitted piece.  Take a photo of your “donation” and share it online.  There are many flickr and Ravelry groups to share your yarn bomb creations, and also feel free to share with me on my new Free Spirit Knits flickr page.  I would LOVE to see them.
Happy knitting and sharing!
