Magical Rainbow Appears Above Williamsburg Bridge #yarnbombing

by Solange Castellar

Working at BUST, I have learned to love a good yarn bomb (or two). Although I can’t knit, or at least I’ve never attempted to, I do appreciate some wonderful, beautiful yarn. It’s the thought that counts, right? 

Well, to my surprise, one of my most beloved New York City bridges, the Williamsburg Bridge to be exact, has been officially yarn bombed. The yarn was constructed at the entrance of the bridge on the Williamsburg side, giving Brooklynites the chance to soak up some bright rainbow colors before crossing over to Manhattan. Excuse me as I cry from happiness :’)

This beautiful, vibrant, lovely-ness was all due to the Minneapolis yarn-bombing duo, HOT TEA. They also yarn bombed some other random places in NYC, so be on the lookout! Check out this nifty video of the artists constructing their WillyB yarn bomb!

You can checkout HOT TEA’s other yarn bombs on their Flickr page, and their official website. Maybe I’ll have some HOT TEA while walking across this bridge and taking in all this color! (Sorry, that pun wasn’t punny at all…)
