The ART of Yarn bombing.....

How wonderful is this picture!!
This is an awesome example of Yarn bombing or as others may call it Knit Graffiti,.
Whoa! this just takes Street art to a whole other level!

Thanks to Sarah Knepper Rudder's (@sknep) Amazing!! Knitted R2D2 piece
she has really brought a lot of focus to this different form of street art.
Yarn bombing is a form of creative street art where knitters, crotchets etc
decorate a public space.
Originally yarn bombing, knit graffiti started as a way to reclaim,
bring life and color back to grey, sterile public areas.

How amazingly fun, creative and inspiring is this form of art,
to me I'd just straight up call this Happy Art!
Because It makes people smile and brightens up the world what could be better,
seriously imagine walking down the street and seeing crocheted cover bikes, trees wrapped
in rainbow scarfs or R2D2 hanging out on the side of the road.
Your day just got even more magical!!

Crafts, knitting, crochet, crafting parties and craft groups
are becoming so mainstream popular again,
Especially with sites like Etsy.....
I think will be seeing a lot more types of crafting creating styles from all ages, genders
backgrounds and interests
