I first read an article about yarn bombing about three years ago in Vogues Knit1 magazine and enjoyed the idea that yet another fun trend in the world of fiber arts had been discovered. What I didn't know until now was just how pervasive it is. This fantastic little book illustrates it's scope by featuring yarn-bombers around the world. It also includes the prerequisite patterns to help inspire design in "tagging" but for me I was riveted by the artists/bombers themselves as well as the photos which are a laugh and a surprise in their detail as well as innovation in "tag" placement.

On a social scale I was mesmerized, from a creative aspect I am blown away and can't wait go to work with my own yarn stash leftovers.

I am the director of a senior center and our knitting group is going to yarn bomb our center, this has been the perfect book for inspiration! There are patterns included and when you see some of the things they have covered in yarn well the pictures are great. I haven't been reading it as a book, just in little snipits but I think it reads well.

I bought this book for my super hip mom for Mother's Day and she and I both LOVE it! Living in Houston I was able to watch first hand as local knitting group Knitta exploded onto the street art scene quickly spreading across the country and globe spreading their positive (and non-destructive) knitted vibes. Mom, being an avid knitter on her own, has always loved the idea of using knitting in more unconventional and creative ways and as a result has always loved when I share with her the expanding world of knitted street art. This book provides tons of great images and tips for fun projects small to large that one can do, or if you're like me, you can just admire the playful ways in which people all over the world have adapted their knitting skills. After thumbing through the book the first time my mom was already telling me about the ways she was excited to get creative herself, and pull away from the typical knitted hats and scarves!

I've been interested in yarn bombing for quite awhile and this book has it all. It is very thorough in the topics that are covered. It is well written and an entertaining read. Patterns and instructions are included. I'm currently planning my first bomb--probably in my own yard.

Yarn Bombing
Yarn bombing is lots of fun. We "Bombed" The children's room at the local library!
The kids loved it.

This is a beautiful book exploring the many ways modern knitters and crocheters are speaking out in public with their work. The photos are gorgeous and the contect is fun and thought-provoking. There are how-to sections as well as stories on the crafters' motivations and history.
Most of the ideas in this book are totally practical!! However the ones that aren't (like covering a school bus)are still quite enjoyable to ponder. Yarn Bombing will definately hang out on my coffee table for at least a little while for other people to enjoy as well. It's so fun to flip through and I've already started my first project! It's a must for those fiber artists who like to live a little on the edge!!
