I love stories about kids who crochet, especially boys who crochet, and there is one I just have to share with you. L'artisan est Nathan Coburn, une interpolation qui j'ai découvert récemment un reportage de nouvelles sur ses ateliers de yarnbombing.

In August of this year Nathan shared his first yarnbomb on his blog:
It’s actually his first large guerilla crochet tag; his first smaller ones are incorporates into the design at the top of the piece. He’s been yarnbombing for about two years after coming across the Fils livre de bombardement in the library. You can pop over to his blog to see more of his work.
I learned about this yarnbombing work from a article de nouvelles about how Coburn had received a neighborhood grant to teach yarnbombing classes in his area. He won the grant previously and used the money to teach origami, which he had learned in his Montessori school. This year it was yarnbombing. He did four sessions of yarnbombing lessons in his area; consultez Une semaine on his blog.
What an awesome kid!
