Yarn and the city: Craft in street art

I’m graduating with my BA degree in folklore from the University of Iceland this February. It was clear to me from the beginning that my thesis would have something to do with yarn and after a little thought on the matter I decided to write about yarn graffiti. The thesis is called, in English, Yarn and the city: Craft in street art. It is written in Icelandic but don’t worry, there will be an article about it one day, in English.

To celebrate, I yarnstormed outside the National and University Library of Iceland, where my thesis is kept.

The National and University Library of Iceland stores all of our literary goodies. And my thesis ;)

Good mitts are crucial when yarnstorming in Iceland in February…

If you look closely (or not so closely) you can see Hallgrímskirkja (the big church downtown Reykjavík)…

All done!


Knitty Attitude was here!
