Yarn Bombing

Well we all see pictures of yarn bombing popping up on the web - and it happens all over the world.  Little did I know there are even books about and events in the Providence area. 

This Saturday, March 24th, at the deCordova Museum in Lincoln, MA, there will be a "drop-in" Learn to Yarn-Bomb program from noon to 3:00PM hosted by the South End Knitters.  This might be worth a trip and Providence has a group of yarn bombers known as "The Yarn Ninjas" so you never know what you might learn or who you might meet!

Books on Yarn Bombing can be found on Amazon - and here are a few to check out:
