Yarnbombing BART – 511 Contra Costa

Yarnbombing BART


Have you seen this on BART?
“Yarnbombing” is a form of removable graffiti, meant to be more fun than political. One BART rider decided to cheer up her ride with a customizer seat cozy.

I had been riding the Bart train to no where a lot lately , measuring the seats repeatedly , making little drawings, taking pictures , draping bits of knitting here and there . A knitted cover for a Bart seat had seemed like a brilliant idea 4 weeks ago-such a witty comment on the collapsing state of the Bart seats . How hard could it be ?
I had been knitting furiously all day and all month . I had knit relentlessly all through our vacation much to my partners surprise . I had knit all the pieces when I noticed they were all curling up into little snails . Knitting curling at the edges ! I knew about this but I had forgotten because I sew everything I knit onto poles. So I had to very determinedly knit flat borders all around each piece . And figure how the heck to make round corners.

This yarnbomber claims creations on bike racks and poles in Berkeley, Orinda, Palo Alto, and more. Have you spotted a yarn bomb? What do you think?
