Genova wrapped in yarn







Genova has been yarn bombed and continues to be! I was enamored by the unexpected splashes of color in the form of granny squares, sea life, and flowers scattered throughout the city, especially around the port. All this yarn added a funky, quirky dimension to the city and was in sharp contrast to the old streets and buildings that characterize this extremely well preserved historic city. We saw signs posted in various locals hosting free knitting and crochet workshops - community outreach and collective creativity - what a fun initiative!
