Seaside, Oregon Yarnbombings

Meant to personalize or add warmth to cold public places, yarnbombs add color and a soft touch to the sterile nature of a chain link fence, or a concrete jungle.  Here in Seaside, the yarnbombs added color and gaiety to the honkeytonk nature of some of the boardwalks more impersonal areas. 

Current Yarnbombs in the Making...

I have been inspired by yarnbombers in Europe and elsewhere who have started being three dimensional with their work...I've been enjoying getting super-textural...
Did I mention Zoe LOVES super textural yarnbombs?
