the most amazing Yarn Bombing...

The other day while I was walking to work I passed by the Polish Consulate on 37th and Madison here in NYC and came across the most amazing yarn bombed statue I have ever seen!  

This is a statue of the Polish WWII resistance movement fighter Jan Karski. In 1942 and 1943 Karski reported to the Polish government in exile and the Western Allies on the situation in German-occupied Poland, especially the destruction of the Warsaw Ghetto, and the secretive German-Nazi extermination camps. 

This yarn bombing was done in loving detail right down to his tie.  I only wish there would have been a sign of some sort giving this yarn bomber or bombers the credit they deserve.

Sunday, July 12, 2015 Closed 12 July-10 August

We're off for the Summer!  My DH and I are taking a tour of Europe for the next four weeks and will be closed for shipping.  

If you purchase patterns and need them emailed to you I will be checking emails throughout the trip and will be happy to assist you with this, but it may take some time as I will only have internet access on some days in the evenings.  So please try to be patient with me!  

Check back, I just may try to blog about my adventures especially if there is knitting involved.
