(NECN: Marnie MacLean, Skowhegan, ME) – Forget sweaters and scarves; knitters are taking their talent to the streets. It’s called yarn bombing, and downtown Skowhegan, Maine was targeted this week.
Brian Dubois, business owner and yarn bombing victim, has a bakery in downtown Skowhegan and was one of the first hit by a random act of knitting.
“Sometime after nine, these culprits perpetrated their yarn bombing in our downtown," said Jennifer Olsen.
Yarn bombers choose their targets and knit on the fly, attaching their creations to everything from trees, to doorknobs and even the street crossing signs.
"We're all concerned that hobbyists can take their cause to the street this way," said Olsen.
What is their cause? First, we had to find out who was the mastermind behind the guerilla knitting.
