Yarn Bombing

Main Street
Small Town, NE

I know the act of yarn bombing (a.k.a. "knit grafitti") is prolly supposed to be all hush-hush, but I can't help blabbing about these knitting adventures of mine. Which means, it's really no secret, & not hush-hush at all.
The reason I yarn bomb is to bring a curious smile to the faces of those who see it. A bit of happy in an unexpected place will hopefully do that. And because I'm not damaging public property, it's all good. Still, I it's a contraversial topic. (Which doesn't make sense at all to me!)

When my knitting accomplice & I headed out to do some grafitti on this particular evening, we were a bit apprehensive. Because, seriously, she recently got pulled over for RUNNING DOWN THE STREET!! She only got a verbal warning I believe. But what would the Po-Po do if they saw us meddling on Main Street with yarn & needles & scissors?? We'd get sent to the slammer for sure! Ironically, to make things a bit more interesting, we decided to yarn bomb a light pole RIGHT ACROSS THE STREET from the police station. haha!

Everything went smoothly though. And more quickly than my first attempt.
I predict a totem pole of yarn happiness in this light pole's future.


  1. Oh this is great! I love it. Do you ever go back to see if they are still there? Have you ever had one removed?
    I really like this idea! You could do friendship bands for light poles. LOL!
    Have a great day.

  2. I have been wanting to yarn bomb for a few months now and plan on doing it this fall. Thanks for sharing :)

  3. Thats completely awasome =) great idea

  4. Hee hee. I haven't yarn bombed yet, but maybe, just maybe.... I recently had a yard sale and didn't sell all of my yarn so I'll measure some interesting sites around town and start knitting. Can't wait!!!


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment. Every time you do, I do a little happy dance. For reals.
