A crafty group moves through the dead of night to leave their mark on La Crosse’s public spaces… their cozy, soft, knitted marks. “Drop Stitch Murphy” and her renegade gang of fellow knitters engage in stealthy “yarn bomb” displays of public art. They anonymously drape library sculptures, city light posts and other public spaces in knitted forms.
In fact, yarn “bombing” is an international craze. Knitters in Pittsburg attempted the biggest yarn bombing in the U.S. this summer by covering the Andy Warhol bridge.
