Ladies 'Yarn Bomb' Custer Park

Posted:

While this brisk weather would cause one to knit or crochet a scarf for themselves, a group of ladies decides to warm the community.

These crochet gurus are yarn bombing Custer Park in Bismarck.

Yarn bombing is a type of street art or graffiti.

It started in 2004 in the Netherlands.

Not only do these women want to add a little color to the park, but they're braving the breezy weather with cold hands, needles, and hooks for a bigger cause.

"A work of public art, but also there's been a decline in the interest in fiber arts in probably the last 10 years and so we're all very interested in raising awareness in fiber arts and maybe we can get some younger people crocheting and knitting and kind of revive the interest," says Brenda Eslinger, Co-Organizer of Yarn Bomb Event.

If you'd like to stay in the loop and help out with these ladies' upcoming yarn bomb events, you can contact Sara Jiras on Facebook at www.facebook.com/TheHookingGal.
