Yarn bombing, random acts of knitting – or what a recent New York Times article has called, “the softer side of graffiti”– has hit urban and rural landscapes across the globe. You’ll see it in potholes in Paris, on trees in Austin, Texas, on the streets of New York, and on the subway in Berlin (see Berlin yarn bombers in the act in this video).
Part memoir, part photo book, and a really nicely done book that highlights vintage Barbie clothes made by the author’s mom.
Miniscule knitting projects. Have you ever seen gloves so small or so intricate? Amazing.
Pure lusciousness in knit. Designs by an Italian knitress who obviously knows her stuff.
And, finally, proof that Blurbarians have been yarn bombing since way back (well, at least since 2008). This book chronicles a community project that created a knitted cosy to cover a beach hut in the U.K.
