A hat tip to Angela Paxton, who alerted me earlier this month to a yarn bombing at Scott Hill Retirement Community in Clifton Forge.
What’s a yarn bombing? WikiPedia puts it succinctly: “Yarn bombing … is a type of graffiti or street art that employs colorful displays of knitted or crocheted yarn or fibre rather than paint or chalk.”
Paxton writes: “This project took 4 women months to put together and 10 people 3 hours to put it up. This is the first in this area and is a decoration that you can see better in the daytime. But it also something people can stay in their car and drive around to look at for Christmas.”
This sounds like Paxton is admitting to the “bombing” to me, heh.
She adds, “International Yarn Bombing Day is June 11th.” I note that, according to a Google search at least, that date may be subject to change.
