Yarn bombing, graffiti knitting or yarnstorming is a type of street art that employs colorful displays of knitted or crocheted cloth rather than paint or chalk. While yarn installations – called yarn bombs or yarnstorms – may last for years, they are considered non-permanent, and, unlike graffiti, can be easily removed if necessary. The practice is believed to have originated in the U.S. with Texas knitters trying to find a creative way to use their leftover and unfinished knitting projects, but it has since spread worldwide.
That is how Wikipedia explains all the colorful goings on you see here-all NOT of my doing-not yet anyway. Number 2 son has challenged me to undertake this mission but here in our bland little hometown I am not finding anything interesting on which to do the deed. I am still looking.
It's too bad my little French Market friend doesn't live around here.
I do know where these guys live but that would be just too easy.
