More and more we can find in our urban jungles a female movement called “yarn bombing” — a graffiti version that uses yarn / wool: standing sculptures and moving cars, standing lamps and moving bicycles now have a new outfit: dressing objects with a glimpse of warm, female humor some women are acting vs. a cold world. The following 6 photos below were kindly sent to my group BLOG IT. Click on the pictures to enter the various galleries of the different photographers at Flickr.com:

  1. thank you for reblogging, indeed I like these knitting projects very much, because they have a political, maybe an anarchistic background… I’m a philosopher and can’t knit anything but my wife does; in our hometown some woman knitted some colorful clothes for a symbol of war, a black iron knight…
