Yarn Bombs

 What is a yarn bomb, you ask?  It's when your local signpost shows up wearing a winter coat.  Or becomes a barberpole.  Or is a holiday decoration, like this one, which showed up a couple of days ago near my house.

This morning, I was walking slowly and noticed there were calling cards attached.  These yarnbombs are made by someone who calls herself MJ, who says she is "brightening the world, one yarnbomb at a time" and then she has an emoticon of :)  a smiley face.

I think they are a hoot.  They are found on several of the poles around here.  When I went to her website, it has a FAQ sidebar with this:

Why yarnbomb, you may ask.
I do it to make you smile. It makes the world we live in a little bit brighter!!

Love it, love it, love it. It's the knitter's equivalent of an impromptu street corner performance. Send her on over to MY street. We could use a smile!
