Yarn seems to have become the hippest material in street art lately. Recently we reported on Juliana Santacruz Herrera, who fills potholes with yarn in a most decorative way. Now check out the works of Strickbombe (‘Yarn bombing’), an anonymous woman knitting in Saarbrücken, Germany.

What she does is quite funny. She decorates all kinds of items in and around Saarbrücken with her knittings. You can see her little woolen socks, cuffs, signs and other shenanigans all over town. Thumbs up for making Saarbrücken such a fun place to live in, and keep ‘em coming, please, whoever you are.
