I recently started knitting. Today I was reading about the history of knitting online and learned about a type of graffiti called yarnbombing. Here's the wikipedia link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yarn_bombing . I love it 1) b/c the concept is fresh & quirky and 2) b/c it dovetails so nicely with street art which we've been discussing in the media literacy class I'm coteaching at MACCS. Anybody know if there's been any yarnbombing going on in Albuq?

Not in Burque, but did see it first in the movie that came to the Guild back in September - Handmade Nation. That movie is now available on DVD at this website: http://www.buyolympia.com/q/Item=handmade-nation-dvd. I recommend the movie as it shows DIY-ers (Do It Yourself) in 15 cities, including the Yarnbombing.
