What do you get when you take Sue Sturdy’s concept, add 1,000 knitters from all over the world, and 16,000 zip ties?
You get the KNIT CamBRIDGE Project! This is really Yarnbombing I can get behind.
Beautifying the locale.
Sharing Cambridge’s rich textile and manufacturing history.
A sense of community and collaboration from both participants and neighborhood members; local and worldwide.
The best part…after a period of display and beauty, everything will be taken down.
After being professionally cleaned, blankets will be donated to shelters in the area and other pieces will be auctioned off to help raise money for different local charities.
As someone who cannot help but wonder, “What happens to all the yarn after the artist leaves? Does someone clean it up? Does it just become litter?”
I think this type of Yarnbombing is the most artistic, beautiful, and beneficial.
Take care Pals!
