Yarn Bombing

I had never come across the concept of yarn bombing before I moved to Copenhagen. I was delighted to spot little knitted or crocheted arms to benches along the Lakes and as time went on there popped up more and more of these colourful wonders across the city. They bring a smile to your face and, as one person said to me as we both snapped photos of the yarn bombs below, they are so much better than graffiti to get a point across or to brighten up your day.

Up until the teachers’ lock out I hadn’t never seen one of the elusive yarn bombers but they were there in full daylight putting the finishing touches to the latest pieces so not created by fairies after all!
