Peach Mochi Ice Cream

International Yarn Bombing Day
June 9, 2012

I'm a little late on this, but it's certainly not too late for this event to bring a smile to our faces!

I recently spent a week at a chamber music intensive, and during our ice-breaker at the beginning of the week, we met a pianist who mentioned a fun fact about himself: he loved to knit! How much he loved it, we didn't know until a very special day:

International Yarn Bombing Day is a day when knitters leave knitted graffiti all over the public. What a fun and creative alternative to spray paint :)

Our pianist friend managed to make us all smile with his two yarn bombs:

The funny part is that the statue is part of an on-campus museum, and in a few short hours the yarn bra was confiscated and reported as vandalism. Can't we all just appreciate good art on art? But no one will be able to take the hydrant's jacket off; it's knitted shut on there :)

We even caught a passerby taking a picture of the hydrant, and because of that, our knitting pianist made a new friend.

Creativity is such a blessing.
