More Yarn Art- Yarn Bombing

I love this week's organically developed theme here on Otterwise of yarny arty stuff. Niftyknits linked in a comment to her blog entry about Yarn Bombing in the UK, which led me to this article, which caused me to search for more info online, where I found a pair of Canadian authors who created a website; Yarnbombing, Improving the Urban Landscape One Stitch at a Time . I look forward to thier upcoming book, due out September this year.

On the way, I found this really great article on, including (among many other weird and wonderful fiber creations) knitted dissection models, which I must say I liked better than the real thing. I had not heard of this 'zine, and have signed up to get new issues on email (am not yet set up to take advantage of a blog reader service, any suggestions?)

Re the image above: Don'tcha love this Japanese bus? When I lived in Japan, it was great fun just to sit and watch truckers go by on the highway. The drivers spent a lot of time and energy lashing thier trucks and trailers with blinky colored lights. It was like Christmas every day :-}
