Una Lorenzen’s documentary titled “yarn” takes a look at knitting and crochet artists around the world and the interesting work that they are doing with needles, hooks and yarn. The film debuted at SXSW to mixed reviews but looks worth a watch to me.

Yarnbombing is often called a feminine, friendly form of graffiti but it doesn’t usually like the kind of graffiti that most people are familiar with. Yarnbomb artist London Kaye really brings the street style into her crochet work with graphic images that represent some of the best aspects of different styles of graffiti art, all completed with yarn. I love her sense of artistic beauty and I’m hardly the only one she’s collaborated with some major name brands and partnered with various designers.
