My mother is visiting from Boston this week and as we were doing some sitesseeing in downtown Seattle, these bright bolts of color caught our eyes and made us gasp:

We just had to get out of the car and look up close. The kids had a blast running around and exploring these tree sweaters.
After doing some research when we got back home I discovered that this ‘knit graffiti’ is part of a national movement called Yarn Bombing, which is the activity of covering things in public places (lamposts, trees, statues, etc.) with knitted material. The trees above were knit bombed by local fiber artist Suzanne Tidwell. Check out these pics that I found of other yarn bombed items:
I think my favorite are the trees, though. The bright burst of colors are just so happy and a wonderful balm against the gray winter sky.
Have you seen any knit graffiti where you live? What do you think about it?
