We love the smell of yarn bombing in the morning! There's no doubt about it: yarn bombing has taken over the world...check out these 10 great pics + 1 video of the hard and creative work by highly talented fiber artists around the globe.

Our journey starts in Texas, USA (home of Knitcrate!) where this knitted wonderland popped up in Austin (photo by Knitted Wonderland).

2. Canada

Our friends up north in Canada know how to get their yarn bomb on! Check out this bridge in Cambridge, Ontario (photo by Sue Sturdy).
