International Yarn Bombing Day was held on June 11th last year. What’s IYBD you ask? “It’s an art craze cooked up by a bunch of ladies ’round the world who like to wrap things in yarn,” says artinfo.com. “More than that, they fancy themselves to be the softer side of street art — instead of spray paint and wheat paste, they cover things in cozy, custom-made sweaters.” Had I known about it, I might have knitted something like these cute little yarn pockets, which feature over at Offbeat Home. They even provide a pattern for making your own. Go on. Get your knitting needles out. The next International Yarn Bombing Day is slated for June 9th, 2012.
