I was walking over to a friend’s place this morning, having to cut through the library behind the Fort Langley Community Centre, when I noticed what I thought was someone’s sweater sleeve on the signpost. When I turned the corner, towards the entrance of the library, there were more yarn sleeves along the rails, posts and trees. The bike rack, tree and benches were hit too.
“What the heck is this” I thought to myself.
When I got to my friend’s place, and showed her the photos on my camera, she said that this is called “Yarn Bombing.” When a group of people who have nothing better to do, lots of spare yarn with them, and lots of time on their hands, go out and cover everything with their knitting. When I thought about this, I came to the assumption that one would want to cover something with knitted yarn to help keep it warm, so perhaps these yarn bombers thought that the bike rack, bench and tree were getting cold?
I am not sure if the tree is happy?
So there you have it, you heard it here first, the Fort Langley Library got yarn bombed.
