About: Durham County Library will host Linette Knight for a talk on yarn bombing at 7 p.m. on Thursday, August 28, at the Main Library, 300. N. Roxboro St.

Wikipedia describes yarn bombing as graffiti or street art that employs colorful displays of knitted or crocheted yarn rather than paint or chalk. It is believed to have originated in the U.S. with Texas knitters trying to find a creative way to use their leftover and unfinished knitting projects, but it has since spread worldwide.

Knight states, “Crochet has become a way I meditate through my life, and every day I find something new to do. It’s definitely not my mother’s nor my grandmother’s crochet. I hope to inspire the world one stitch at a time and live my life as rich in color as my yarn.”
