City yarn artists

Birmingham has been named one of the most walkable cities in the United States, and I certainly take advantage of that walking and running over 40 miles each week on our streets and sidewalks.

One of the things that has made my walks even more enjoyable are the surprise appearances of yarn art throughout the city.

There are many different creative yarn projects on trees, benches and the stone barriers in the park in Birmingham. They always make me smile. I have posted these on Instagram and Facebook, and the response is always so positive, and my friends in other communities are jealous that we have such a dedicated group of artists who create such fun and inspiring pieces of art for the community to enjoy.

I hope whoever the creative people are read this and know how much they are appreciated.
