Historic downtown was abuzz last Saturday as knitters and crocheters joined together for Spring Into Yarn, the city's yarn-bombing day.
For those unfamiliar with the craft, yarn-bombing is a street art where knitted and crocheted items are installed and attached to public property. The Norcross Arts Alliance held where anyone could come to crochet and knit something for yarn-bombing day.
On March 31, the ladies from the classes set to work on the town with their needles and yarn. Others who hadn't attended the classes also contributed work to the streetscape, too.
"I've never done anything like this before, and I love it," said local resident Jeannette Inserni, who just learned how to crochet in the first yarn-bombing class in February.
The work will be up during the entire month of April. Some of the more notable pieces of the day include a crocheted wedding dress in city hall, the frogs in Thrasher Park and the bench at the Norcross Garden Club. For a full recap of the day, check out the video attached to this article.
