I hope this is the right category for this...this mega yarn bombing is not just crochet and not just knitting so.... We live in a little capital city, North of 60 and a couple young ladies gathered together members of our community to make a giant yarn bomb for our DC-3 weathervane that sits by our Transportation Museum.  I flew in one of these things almost 30 years ago up here...noisy and freeze to death Cheesy Cheesy  I drove up to take pics this morning and found an old pickup truck in the parking lot that had been yarn bombed also  Grin  They could not cover the cockpit area or the tail because of weight issues.  It will stay up for 2 weeks and then will be removed and all the individual pieces (which are blanket size) are being donated to charity.

I was going to post my own pics but then I thought I would put a link to the local website as they have so much more on it to see and little videos of the bombing.  Enjoy  Cheesy  http://yarnbombyukon.wordpress.com/
