Yarn bombing, yarnbombing, yarnstorming, guerrilla knitting, urban knitting or graffiti knitting is a type of graffiti or street art that employs colorful displays of knitted or crocheted yarn or fibre rather than paint or chalk. [source]
My most favorite tree (that happens to be outside my living room window) is experiencing a lot this Spring! Crows built a nest in it and successfully reared 4 children! Those crow babies just flew off a few days ago. And yesterday the tree was yarnbombed while I was babysitting my nephew.
OMG- what is the chance that MY TREE would get yarnbombed?! Of all places! AMAZING!!!

The message behind the project is about the intrinsic value of art in all forms, and its ability to bring people together in a way they may never have interacted before…

That’s the way my nephew, Henrik, looks at crafts (such as sock monkeys and knitted toys)and it leaves me in awe. My kids are in the mid 20s now, but I recall well enjoying watching them looking at something with their wide-eyed wonder. It’s a delight to be able to revisit the world again through my nephew’s eyes (and his hands).
Huge thank you to Darcy for arranging and hosting our first (of many) Sock Monkey Thursdays!
