The phenomenon, called Yarnbombing, is thought to have originated in the US but knitters are now beginning to cover British streets in woollen ‘tags’.
This makes life a lot more colourful, right? You can read the whole article here.

That is very neat! I would love it if some of you knitters came over to my town and made it colorful. The white snow is starting to get to me hehe.

We get inspired by the same topics. Just recently I wrote a post on yarnbombing.
And I think we should make a call for a woollen revolution! ;-)
