Have you seen this?

People have been covering public objects with yarn.
One lady in California, who remains nameless spends 12 hours a day spinning and knitting these in East Bay area.
According to Wikepedia, it started in Texas as a use for leftover yarn.


I’d love to join in, except I have orders for 6 blankets to do first, so I’m not committing. XD

    It looks like a fun way to add color and whimsy. 🙂 Certainly less toxic than some paints out there.

    Looks lovely, but like you said, quite a time commitment!

      Yes. I keep looking at a tree in my front yard but no, I’m over committed on the yarn work already. XD

      Me too. And I hope someone else did it. I find myself eyeing places as I drive along.
