Yarn bombing is knitted or crocheted graffiti. And it’s very tricksy. Usually anonymous and done in the wee hours. In recent months, yarn bombs seem to be popping up more and more here in Courtenay.

Or maybe I’m just more aware of them since my friend Chris gave me the book Yarn Bombing: The Art of Crochet and Knit Graffiti by Mandy Moore and Leanne Prain. I think he hopes that I’ll be out bombing the streets of Courtenay.

That would be tricksy of me. But like most tricksy hobbits, it’s hard to get me out of my warm burrow into the rain-filled night. But in the meantime, bravo! to the hardworking hobbits who have been bombing our local streets.

Thank you Chris for the book and for the photos!Yarn Bombing StreetYarn Bombing Tree
