Yarn Bombing, known as Guerilla Crochet/Knitting among other names, will take over the world. June 11th (as well as being my younger son’s and his cousin’s birthday) has been designated International Yarnbombing Day. The start of this movement has been attributed to Magda Sayeg, 37, from Houston, who says she first got the idea in 2005 when she covered the door handle of her boutique with a custom made cozy. I’m sure she had no idea what she was starting!

Some don’t like this event, saying it’s a waste of yarn; some love it and say it brings fiber art to the masses. Personally, I just think it’s fun!
