yarn bombed bike racks

sometimes even amongst the fragmentation of bicycle infrastructure and road experience, there is always something a little exciting to see like YARN BOMBING or "knit graffiti" here in Oakland. i love the idea of Yarn bombing as reclaiming and personalizing sterile or cold public places, it gives a warm sense if community. i've seen yarn bombing all over the internet but have finally seen it at home and just find it so cute. i'm aware that there are guerrilla knitters in Oakland adorning the city with yarn bombing and i'm just happy to see it being spread throughout. who ever you guys are keep it up!
