Photo Challenge Day 16

In 2004 a new form of graffiti appeared - yarn bombing!  This is the use of knitted or crocheted materials to brighten up the sterile urban landscape.  Recently, the region of Rosslyn was the recipient of such a yarn bombing in order to promote the Artisphere, a small museum and performing arts gallery.

The pieces ranged from simple tree coverings ...

... to more elaborate murals, ...

... and larger stuffed items.

My only disappointment is that I didn't know of it in time to participate myself!
