1CA9B48607ABFC9226E714B0F9F08189 8897A8BFA6CE5AFAF6D760293A81C4C8 D13A866D16F69BC0CF481B788C68B6C9The activity for this week called yarn bombs or yarn storms – may last for years, they are considered non-permanent, and, unlike other forms of graffiti, can be easily removed if necessary. Nonetheless, the practice is still technically illegal in some jurisdictions, though it is not often prosecuted vigorously.Yarn bombing was initially almost exclusively about reclaiming and personalizing sterile or cold public places. It has since developed with groups graffiti knitting and crocheting worldwide, each with their own agendas and public graffiti knitting projects being run.

Actually, yarn bombing is very popular in my country especially in winter. Unlike here in the USA, Chinese have a exact purpose for knitting, either to make clothes or shoes for infant. I used to make scarf by yarn bombing. It seemed easy but really not, to complete one task requires patient and time. there is no doubt that t is rather difficult to accomplish in a short time for this project. Therefore, even though I bought knitting yarn in the market I decide to do something easier and funny.

I think maybe I can use the Knitting yarn to make a five-pointed star which is very beautiful and meaningful. luckily, I have a new understanding of yarn bombing now  after watching so many nice work done by the yarn storming artists in the class, it is good to see an usual work turn out to be a masterwork.QQ图片20150301190404 QQ图片20150301190420 QQ图片20150301190435
