yarn bombing in the "loops" - 2013

Last year, for the annual Spring Festival, many of the fiber artists of Kamloops B.C. beautified their city with a yarn make over. It was exciting to see, as this was the first local yarn bombing that I had witnessed. You can see some of the photos that I took here. 
This summer The Kamloops Art Gallery, in collaboration with the City of Kamloops, KCBIA, Electrictree Yarns and community volunteers, all got together and once again downtown Kamloops was transformed with a colourful, yarn make over. The difference between last year and this was that instead of a few random yarn bombings spread throughout the downtown core, every tree that lined the main street was brightened up with its own knitted, crocheted, or what have you, yarn cozy. The following are just a few examples......
This one reminds me of a giant jelly fish...

...and this last one proves that everyone can participate in a yarn bombing, even if they don't knit or crochet.
