Say what? Yes, that’s right…. A “yarn bombing” is coming to the John Marshall and Warrenton libraries. No need to run for cover. It’s perfectly safe.
The John Marshall Library’s Books ‘n Stitchers will pull up their chairs and knitting needles on Tuesday, June 11 at the John Marshal and Warrenton libraries to celebrate World Wide Knit in Public Week.
In anticipation, Virginia (the beloved bronze statue that overlooks the Warrenton Library Garden) is decked out in lovely knitted cape and cap she will be sporting all week, and the poles near the front door of the John Marshall library have been ‘yarn bombed’ as well.
Knit in Public week is the largest knitter run event in the world. Each local event is put together by volunteers. Knit in Public Day is about showing that knitting can be a community activity in a very distinct way.
You don't have to be a member of the Book 'n Stitchers to join in; all interested knitters are welcome - from novice to expert. Not a knitter? Stop by and say hello and admire the beautiful craftwork being created.
Of course, if you are interested in learning more, you can pull up a chair and join in - or stroll into the library - we have a book on that!
