Streetcolor's blog that she had yarnbombed an Oakland Library. Naturally I ran down to get a picture of it before it was taken down. Check out her blog for other efforts. Yarnbombing is such a whimsical and zany activity, that it's hard to imagine that folks would take exception to it. But it happens. Last year another group yarnbombed the T in the There sculpture on the Oakland-Berkeley line. City officials initially protested and then backed off, probably realizing they came across as stiff-necked, humorless, bean counters. I don't know where or when yarnbombing started, but I do remember a post by Steffe last year, which raises the possibility this activity started in Sweden! Visit ABC Wednesday for more takes on Z. Next week we start again with A.
