Oh the humanity! It’s a yarn bomb!

Last Saturday was the first annual International Yarn Bombing Day (IYBD). For those of you who don’t know, yarn bombing involves knitters and crocheters using their creations to brighten up the urban landscape. Here are some amazing examples of extreme yarn bombs
