International Yarn Bombing Day: Twisted stitchers unite


Yarn Bombing enthusiasts leave their tags in Ridgefield, Connecticut.

Yarn Bombing enthusiasts left their tags in Ridgefield, Connecticut.

International Yarn Bombing Day is here, and a large number of sew and sews in Ridgefield, Connecticut have stepped up to the plate spreading the love, and the wool, throughout their town.

I first wrote about Yarn Bombing, also known as Knitting Graffiti, back in April when a few tiny knitted swatches were found on tree branches in a nature preserve in Weston, Conn. Well, Ridgefield, the land of twisted stitchers, has taken fabric tagging to a new level.

A big shout out to Nancy O’Connell, owner of nancy o, a yarn shop and gift store in Ridgefield. Nancy drew attention to yarn handiwork in January when she got behind a project to make green and white scarves for families in Newtown following the Sandy Hook shooting tragedy. Now she’s one of the behind-the-scenes instigators for International Yarn Bombing Day, encouraging the colorful fabric tags that are marking the sidewalks of Ridgefield and the suburban landscape.

Kudos to all the Yarn Bombers out there who have added a touch of brightness to the world.
