Yarn Bombed Tree

If you are anywhere near Corning, New York this weekend be sure to stop by Wooly Minded on West Market Street and take a look at the yarn bombed tree in front of the shop! If you aren't familiar with the new yarn bombing craze it is essentially a form of graffiti that is used to brighten everyday objects while promoting the art of knitting and crocheting. I don't know that I will be knitting sweaters for the trees in my yard anytime soon, but I sure do love the look of this yarn bombed tree!

You can see more examples of yarn bombing at Yarnbombing.com

Hmmmmm interesting, were there lots of them, or just this one? Very colorful to see, I am sure! So you don't think you will knit colors for your trees anytime soon ;>)? Have a great weekend, stay cool!
