    Hello guys, my name is Julenne and I'm actually doing some research on how social media plays a role on these kind of disruptions. Does anybody know is social media play a role with yarn bombing? I would appreciate your help, peace :)

    Yarn bombing is my favorite type of art disruption! Some yarn bombers hit the blue bear statue outside the Colorado Convention Center when I lived in Denver and gave the bear a ball and chain. They also leg-warmered the dancing statues at the art center!

      Awesome! Hey Jelena do you know if this yarn bombers somehow use social media to set like the place and time or invite other artist?

      • Jelena Woehr

        Hi Julenne, I don't think so. Yarn bombing takes such a long time that it tends to be a circle of knitters who knit together in many sessions and talk often. It's not quite like a flashmob where others could join on the day of -- they have to each knit their piece in a coordinated way.

      Jelena - I would LOVE to see a pic of the leg warmers! That sounds awesome.

    love it. whimsy is wonderful. I saw some awesome yarn bombs in Utrecht, Netherlands. Happy to see it closer to home. when I lived in NYC I used to blow bubbles on the subways and share small bottles of bubbles with strangers. Always made people smile. Sharing bits of creativity in unexpected places is awesome! Thank you for sharing!

    This made me smile. I always love seeing art like this in public spaces. It engages the mind on a journey of curiosities---imagining who the artist is, what their intent was, why they did it, etc. etc. It's almost like a mystery with the art serving as the first obvious clue. It's great to be able to get a behind-the-scenes view for this particular endeavor. Thanks for sharing!

      Thanks Hannah, we love it too! I only wish she'd come to the F line.
