|Yarn Bombing at Gwithian, Cornwall|
In the Cornish black and gold striped affect it gave a cosy feel to this industrial pipe that had been feeling a bit sorry for it self in the past.
This has been my first sighting of this on a dog walk here in Cornwall, and actually it made me smile!
Nonetheless I must say beware, the practice is still technically illegal in some jurisdictions, though it is not often prosecuted vigorously.
Some of you might be thinking what is this? I was not sure what it was called, Knitting Graffiti I thought, but realised that I was not down with the lingo!
So here goes to be hip this is what you should call it& Yarn bombing, yarnbombing, yarnstorming, guerrilla knitting, urban knitting or graffiti knitting!
What ever you decide to use it is a type of graffiti or street art that employs colourful displays of knitted or crocheted yarn or fibre rather than paint or chalk.
They are considered non-permanent, and, unlike other forms of graffiti, can be easily removed if necessary.
On Valentines Day Porthleven was yarn bombed by Grannies Graffiti see story full story here.
So have you spotted any Yarn Bombing else where on your Cornish dog walks? Would be interesting to see your photos!
