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.
Karen Thompson is the author of the wonderful kids’ crochet book Crocheting with Lucy Loop. She is also a lifelong crocheter who has been dealt some tough blows and used the craft to help her get through them. She learned to crochet from her mother and the craft helped her to feel connected to mom even after she had passed away. When her own son was murdered, Karen was numb to crochet for a long time but eventually found her way back to it and has used yarn bombing to honor her son.
My beaux took a trip to Denver / Boulder to see his family. While he was there, he spotted this yarnbomb.
It’s just amazing to see the massive number of contributions that people have sent it for the @yarnbomber collaborative yarnbombing art project
Just an art video share today in yarnbombing , knit and crochet.
Thanks to Instagram I realized that @yarnbomber is accepting crochet and knit items as donations for a yarnbombing installations. I went to the Yarnbomber website to learn more and decided that I could kill two birds with one stone by donation.
Yarn Bombing Los Angeles, the group that brought us the collaborative granny square art project at CAFAM, has a new project in the works that I’m planning to join in on and wanted to invite you to to do the same.
