Yarnbombing Is Catching On in Hawaii

I’d never heard of it until recently, but the international phenomenon of yarnbombing (aka yarnstorming, knit grafitti) seems to have been around for a while.

There’s even a book devoted to it. Calling it Yarn Bombing: The Art of Knit and Crochet Grafitti, authors Mandy Moore and Leanne Prain chronicle the history of yarn bombing, offer 20 knit and crochet patterns to help get you started, and then give loads of advice on how to take your pieces “to the streets.”

Now yarn bombing (I’m spelling it both ways) has come to Hawaii. A group of intrepid knitters and crocheters are gathering together to create environmentally-friendly knitted and crocheted pieces to dress the environs of Kokua Market, the only natural foods coop in Hawaii, located in downtown Honolulu near the University of Hawaii at Manoa.

I’ve been crocheting for over 40 years and blogging since 2004 – two of my favorite things in the world to do besides walking the beaches of windward Oahu, Hawaii.
