Yarn Bombing - an explosion of unexpected color


This bus in entirely covered in yarn by artist, Magda Sayeg, who is self -proclaimed as the mother of yarn bombing (or "graffiti knitting", how awesome is that?), now a worldwide phenomenon.  So please in following years observe International Yarnbombing Day, which was first observed on June 11, 2011...say whaaaat?!)  Google it and you will find all sorts of amazing pictures:
