Crocheting to make people happy

by Trish Davis

This Is Finn, a local 6th grader who crochets all the local street polls. I asked him about it and here’s what he said.

“I started yarnbombing, which is when you take knitting or crochet and hang it up as art, with little hearts all over my neighborhood. These were very small, but they spread joy and had people commenting on how they loved searching for them, so I started to plan bigger projects. I did bigger hearts, rocks, and a bridge; then one night I measured a street sign while on a walk and I knew it would be my next subject.  Everyone loved it, it seemed that this random street sign was making runners smile and giving people joy, so obviously I had to do more and here we are today.“
