This was in downtown Seattle near Pioneer Square.
Suzanne Tidwell, a local fiber artist, beautified these abandoned stumps in Sammamish. This was the spring version.
These trees in a Kirkland park wore their "sweaters" for quite a while. I think these huge pieces were done on a knitting machine.
A yarnie side trip to Darn. Knit. Anyway. in Stillwater, MN, during a family reunion added to my yarnbombing collection. If you Google "yarnbombing," you'll see lots of other examples from other cities.
Meanwhile, back in Washinton, this was featured in a local shopping center and then, according to Tidwell's blog, moved to a museum.
We haven't seen any more lately but probably we haven't looked carefully. How about you? Have you seen evidence of "yarn bombing" in your town? Incidentally, I'm not crazy about that term, but I've also seen "yarn guerillas" which seems worse. I'd much prefer "yarn art"! I'll bet these projects, however they're done, made a serious dent in someone's stash! Check out Patchwork Times for other knitters' projects.
