Yarn Bombing; If you not aware of this word, let me fill it for you. Yarn bombing or Yarn storming is a type of street art that employs colourful displays of kinitted or croceted rather than spray painting or chalks. An 102-year-old grandmother named Grace Brett has become a global sensation for her yarnbombing. With the help of the Souter Stromer (secert group of yarnstromers), she yarn-bomed her own town.
"I thought it was a really good idea to decorate the town and enjoyed having my crochet included," Brett told the Press and Journal.
When most people were asleep at 4 AM, a group secretly yarn bombed trees, benches and anything else they could get their hands on.
Brett's daughter Daphne, 74, said, "She has always knitted and crocheted all through her life and also has done all the knitting for the babies and made shawls."
"The yarnstormers, a group of mixed age range, have been inspired by Grace to use their creative and artistic skills to transform the Selkirk landscape," said Kay Ross, a spokeswoman for the Souter Stormers group.
