Notes from New York: Yarnbombing

From Katherine Jane:

Yarnbombing seems to be coming up a lot recently in conversation, but until recently I had never seen it in the wild. Then new friend Ben organized a field trip to explore the Lower East Side, and we came across an art gallery that had all its windows covered in camouflage crochet:

They had also covered a bicycle that was resting outside, right down to the kickstand:

Later we find ourselves in a crammed-full candy store. The store also had little knicknacks, and a variety of little piggy banks, including these two:

Which made me wonder: would be possible to be a rock star knitter?

From Kathy: Katherine Jane, we have yarnbombing right here in Maine!
