ABC Radio National rebroadcast a program about yarn bombing from its now defunct Artworks program.

The broadcast date was 25 December so you may have missed it.

Anyway, it's worth a listen.

I don't partake of yarn bombing myself (there isn't enough time to knit "proper" things in nice yarn let alone bother with tags in crap yarn, because who would bother using good yarn for that?) but when I have encountered it in the wild, so to speak, it has delighted me.

ABC Radio National has rejigged a LOT of programs this week.  Old favourites have gone for good and been replace by new programs.  Unfortuantely, the new programs aren't available on iTunes yet and the old ones are really hard to find on the ABC website.  I'm a wee bit frustrated that I'm not getting my RN book and arts fix via my preferred medium this week.

Also, photo pinched from RN website.

I am totally with you on the yarn bombing: happy for others to do it, but any precious knitting time is for me and people I know and love!!
Also agree about Radio National, oh sorry, RN. They've gone down the Kentucky Fried Chicken/KFC route. I am not good at ABC change, and there didn't seem to be much listener consultation at all.

I only listen to the podcasts of shows, so didn't find out the changes very late in the day. Still haven't worked them all out.
