Spotted in the Yarniverse: Yarn-Wrapped Road Barriers in Austin, TX

June 17th, 2010

We’ve talked about “yarn-bombing” or “yarn graffiti” before, but it’s always fun to see new examples of this subversive form of urban art, involving covering everyday, public things with knitted and crocheted fabric.

You know, we’ve even contributed a little to our own neighborhood, here in New York.

Well, our webmaster Nancy’s daughter Elizabeth just sent us this photo she took while out and about in Austin, TX, and since we love seeing examples of yarn-bombing, we wanted to share it with you:

Yes, these road barriers are cozied in striped, solid, and even chevron knits.

Do you have a fun yarn-bombing story? Tell us about it by leaving a comment!

    Our neighborhood has been yarn bombed this spring and summer with new yarn bombs appearing weekly, it seems. Trees or wooden posts at community gardens, new businesses and a place offering free clothes and free tutoring services to Burmese refugees in our city neighborhood are just a few locations to be “bombed”.

    There are some statues of animals on Church St in downtown Burlington, VT that always have some form of knitted or crocheted clothing added to them. It is fun to see when it changes.
