World's 104-Year-Oldest Street Artist Yarn Bombs Her Own Town. Coolest Granny Ever!

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.
