I didn't even know what yarnbombing was until a month ago when I spotted this little number during an early morning jog. It was on Rose just east of Lincoln in Venice.
It was awesome. It was the kind of graffiti I could get behind. Not permanent, pretty, and unoffensive. There was a card attached that pointed me to this website. Her goal is to inspire people, make them happy, beautify the concrete jungle that is Los Angeles. I was so inspired and in awe of this idea that I volunteered my own crocheting services to any projects she might have in the future, and that's when this was born.
We yarnbombed about 30 cars with side view mirror cozies with friendly sayings. Just a little something to make 30 drivers smile, be curious, or wonder what the heck this is. For my cohort, it's about inspiring people. For me it's about making someone smile with my admittedly kitschy craft. So enjoy Los Angeles. I think we're just getting started.
