Ever heard of a yarn bomb?

Well thanks to the city I call home I do.

Towards the end of April we noticed random signs and poles in our beloved city being wrapped in fantastic knits. Confused? Yeah I was too at first, take a glance below to see what I mean…

Austin newcomer Magda Sayeg has been yarn bombing all over town lately and I absolutely love it. Of course whenever I come across the crafty masterpieces I never have a camera on me. So alas I’ve had to grab some pictures from online.

I’ve read articles about her here and here. But just today was scrolling through one of my regular photo blogs and saw that there was something similar going on in Rome.

“Hmmm.” I thought and then something inside me just knew that they came from the same place. I love when my two worlds collide, that is my Austin world and my lovely Italian world :-)

My intuition proved right and after some light research realized they were indeed the work of Magda.

I adore the juxtaposition of old, monochromatic structures mixed with the bright colors and soft texture of the yarn.

Brilliant…keep an eye out for this gal in your hometown…
