Holy Yarn Bomb!

29 Apr

011To my surprise, there has been a yarn bombing not far from where I work! Last Friday, I cut down LaMonte on my lunch break to check out an estate sale, and I as I passed Stevens Elementary School, I noticed the yarn bombing. I screamed out loud as I drove past, “Oh wow! A yarn bombing!!!”. Of course, I had to pull over and take a few pictures! Several trees were wrapped in colorful knitted pieces and bright red, yarn apples were hung from the trees. Knitted and crocheted flowers and leaves adorned the chain link fence. It was so beautiful and it really gave some color and pizzaz to the school.

Upon telling my mother what I had seen, she told me she saw a news clip about this on one of the local tv channels. I did a search for the video and found out that the members of the Oak Forest Yarn Club did all the knitting and crocheting. They had the school all decorated for the kids when they returned from Spring Break a few weeks ago. What a wonderful surprise for those children! The yarn bombing is supposed to be kept up all spring, so if you live in Houston, you might want to go check it out. If you don’t then you can enjoy the knitted art below via the pictures. Enjoy!
