Quite by chance I came across a new urban art form. It’s called Yarn storming, It’s a kind of woolly graffiti which is made by knitters to brighten up the streets last summer. I’ve written about the fabulous Christo and Jeanne Claude, the artists who wrapped buildings and places of interest, this isn’t quite in their league though….. I can’t really see this taking off though and I would like to see the wool put to better use (keeping homeless people warm for example). I wonder what happens to the yarn when it gets wet , which must be a daily hazard given our weather. It must look soggily sad. It’s not for me I’m afraid, though I applaud Knit the City Yarn Corps artistic right to do it. I wonder what you think though?
