Yarn Bombing the Streets of LA

This summer, artist Ellen Schinderman curated an exhibit in Los Angeles called "Home Is Where the Needle Marks", showcasing fiber art and exploring the home sphere. Working with Lion Brand yarns, Ellen and her cohorts yarn-bombed several areas of LA as part of the Downtown LA Artwalk to draw attention to the fiber arts. Recently, she shared these photos with us:

Plus, the group of knitters and crocheters who helped Ellen create all of the colorful, textural pieces will be taking all of their leftover yarn and making hats and scarves for homeless in their community.

Have you yarn-bombed something in your community? Tell us about  it in the comments!
