Yarn Bombing

January 22, 2014

For a few brief days on the Northern State University campus, several statues wore knitted hats and scarves.

I couldn’t stop looking at the hands.  The scarves were held in place by the hands, destroyed the craftsmanship by doing so.

I miss the brightness in that part of campus, and that I didn’t take more pictures while I had the chance.

Not to neglect my other coworkers, here’s a piece by Greg Blair.  I was able to see this from the very early stages, and loved the process and how it turned out.
