JP A to Z: Y is for Yarn #AtoZChallenge #JamaicaPlain

Y is for Yarn

Jamaica Plainers like to knit and stitch.  And when they’re not making clothing, tea cosies, and afghan blankets, they sometimes “yarn bomb”  – a colorful way of bringing a little cheer to the neighborhood. With yarn.

Sadly, yarn bombing seems to be a seasonal activity so I haven’t found too many examples out in the wild this April.

You probably can’t make a call anymore, but at least the phone booth is warm.

JP Knit & Stitch routinely yarn bomb a post outside the store, but it never seems to be there when I have my camera.  Here’s a photo on Instagram.
