International Yarn Bomb Day

Saturday, June 11 2011 was the first International Yarn Bombing Day,

when crafters around the world will create playful public art by tagging parking meters with knitted cosies or adorning public statues with crocheted scarves. A yarn bomb can be as simple as wrapping a 3-inch-long knitted band around a street light pole or as elaborate as covering an entire bus in a sweater.  The practice also goes by the names of yarnstorming, guerrilla knitting and yarn graffiti.

Now in its seventh year, the 2017 International Yarn Bomb Day date for your diaries will be Sunday 11th June.  Get to it, Guerilla Knitters everywhere!
