Calling All Knitters and Crocheters!

Yarn bombing. Maybe you’ve heard about it. Maybe you’ve even seen it. Now come put your knitting or crochet skills to work and help turn Logan Square into a temporary gallery of yarn art!

Installation goes up on July 14th, and trees, signposts, bike racks, parking meters, and trash cans on the 2600-2800 N. Milwaukee commercial corridor will be covered with colorful knit and crochet pieces. Wouldn’t you like to see your own handiwork among these?

To help push projects along, there will be several knit-ins at Uncharted Books and El Cid Restaurant. These will be a great opportunity to meet fellow yarn bomb participants and get some work done. The next one is on June 19th at Uncharted Books from 6-8 p.m.

If you don’t have time to create a project, you can still participate by donating unwanted (but usable!) yarn to our drop-off at Uncharted Books.

For more info on the project, check out logansquareyarnbomb.tumblr.com.

Happy stitching!

  2. I love the knitting & crocheting that is taking over Milwaukee Ave, but I didn't know about it until I saw it! Is there any way I can add something or is it too late?
