Yarn Bombing - nanna's knitting needles meets street art magic!

I LOVE that yarn bombing aka yarn storming is the new graffiti! This brilliant street art trend, sweeping the globe, involves knit-wrapping anything from trees to lamp posts and buses! 

Following the resurrection of knitting and crocheting this cool new craft is one of those feel good contributions to the arts, even if it there is an air of naughtiness... dare you not to smile the next time you stumble across a yarn bombed piece of public property.... it's like Nana wrapping you in a cosy warm blanket for the night - lovely!

Groups such as Knit The City  - a collective of knitter's regularly Yarn Storm the city of London.
