Yarn bombing!

Today, Mrs Jones ride on her bike and found a nice action of yarn bombing at the Regentesselaan in The Hague. A huge scarf around a tree, from the bottom to the top.

Yarn bombing (or yarnbombing, yarn storming, guerrilla knitting, kniffiti, urban knitting, graffiti knitting) is a kind of street art made with colourful displays of knitted or crocheted yarn or fibre. It makes “cold”places warmer with creativity, but is also a good expression for a (political) statement.
