Yarnbombing, guerilla knitting, or graffiti knitting is a type of street art using brightly coloured knitted or crocheted objects instead of spray cans to make a statement.

Stones Corner Yarnbombers, General Twine and Agent Stitch, have been busy bombing Stones Corner shopping precinct for the past couple of years; protesting against the Eastern Busway.

``[I]My mum gave me a yarnbombing book and I decided yarnbombing Stones Corner would be a great way for me to reclaim my public space[/I],'' General Twine said.

Until last week, I had never heard of yarnbombing but apparently it is a worldwide phenomenon.

The first International Yarnbombing Day was observed on June 11, 2011.
