|Yarn Graffiti near Kanab, Utah|
I love finding art! On a sidewalk or out in the wild! Recently I drove to St. George to visit my dad and saw this metal sculpture outside a thrift shop. Very cool! And then sweetie and I were out driving around the Kanab area and I spotted this Yarn Graffiti on a sign post near Jackson Flats Reservoir! I haven't run into any before and was thrilled with this sighting! I know that a lot of the people that tag trees and other objects with yarn call it Yarn Bombing. I find the term implies violence, so I chose to call it Yarn Graffiti, which I feel implies art. One of the Yarn Bombers in one of my Ravelry groups explains that they are trying to take back the term bomb. Um, well I don't get it. How do you take back a term like bomb? Am I missing something? Does that word have another meaning besides an explosive device meant to injure or destroy, or the verb of detonating an explosive device? I am not going to argue the point. They are decorating the world with yarn and trying to make people smile.
