Yarn Bombing - knitting Madrid

YARN BOMBING!! Sounds very aggressive but in fact it is a very quiet and decorative activity... as you know from past posts, My little Madrid started some knitting lessons recently... and enquiring a bit about this new passion, I discovered that around the world , many passionate about Knitting gather in open spaces to redecorate their cities. This phenomenon is called Yarn Bombing.
Last meeting in Madrid was on Saturday June 9th at Plaza Dos de Mayo. There I went armed with my knitting tools. At the beginning I couldn’t spot the group but then I found a knitted tree! That was the sign!!

Great ambiance, women of all ages knitting and having a chat under a nice tent, some brought their own stuff and others borrowed wool and sticks from them.

I won’t miss it!!
