I haven’t been to Center City Philly in a while, until last night when I saw this.

Yarn Bombing at the Reading Terminal Market

Look at what I saw yesterday.

Side by side yarn bombing

 

Last time I was there only one of these bike racks was bombed.  I was pleasantly surprised to see  multiple racks bombed in a row.  🙂 

For those who don’t know, yarn bombing is when someone (or a group of someones) attach knit and/or crocheted items to public objects.  This is usually done at times when very few people are around to witness the act. Sometimes the item will be intended for personal use (a scarf, hat or blanket left in a random but public place)  or just to bring a smile and sunshine into everyday life.
