Yarn bombing or graffiti knitting.
* Examples of yarn bombing have been recorded as early as May 2004 in Den Helder, Netherlands. In the U.S., in 2005 Texas knitters used their leftover and unfinished knitting projects, but it has since spread worldwide.
The movement has been said to be “changing the face of craft” as stitchers are more and more frequently being viewed as fibre artists rather than amateurs or vandals.
Joann Matvichuk of Lethbridge, Alberta invented International Yarnbombing Day, which was first observed on June 11, 2011.
Marta, Andi get ready for the next Y-Day.
