Latest yarn bombing found - Hay-on-Wye

We last discovered some yarn bombing down in Cornwall whilst visiting the beautiful gardens of Trevarno but just yesterday, upon a visit to the lovely 'town of books' Hay-on-Wye in Powys, Wales, we came across this more recent yarn bombing at the Castle Book Shop, a fantastic open air book shop with lots of old, slightly damp and worn books which you can pick up for as little as 30p by dropping a few coins into their honesty box.

And hidden on a post by one book shelf was this cute little purple heart by Yarn Craft Rebel at http://www.yarn-craft-revival.blogspot.com/

The yarn bomber describes her mission as "The intention ... to inspire a Yarn Craft Revival and put a smile on the faces of the Locals, as well as the Visitors to our lovely town."

Well it certainly put a smile on our faces! What do you think? Is yarn boming meaningful or just a waste of perfectly good yarn? Let us know your thoughts! (^-^)
