Yarn Bombing.... Even Tampax is doing it!

I thought it would be really fun to do a blog post all about yarn bombing. For those of you that are not familiar yarn bombing is "is a type of graffiti or street art that employs colorful displays of knitted or crocheted yarn or fibre rather than paint or chalk." -

A few days ago I was sitting on my moms couch  and looking through Oprah magazine to find this ad:

Now if that does not get you to want to buy Tampax I don't know what will!,_Montreal.jpg

This piece of yarn bombing is so big the belly button is

This video is also really cool!! Take a second to watch it! 

So go out there and get your yarn bombing on!! Great way to use up some of your stash and put a smile on a few strangers faces. Lets make this world a much more colorful place!
