Sometimes I feel as if I spend as much time in the air as on the ground, so, since I had finished my last crochet (or was it knit?) project before landing, I picked up Hemispheres magazine in the seat pocket discovered this article on yarn bombing.  While there are more photos in the actual magazine (I’m sure most of you have seen the crochet-encased car below), it was also interesting for the article to talk primarily knitting (OK, some crochet) but mostly to show crocheted projects (at least in the close-ups) – and with the opening caption under a very obviously crocheted “spray wool” can (above) at the beginning of the article, “knitted illustraion by Kate Jenkins.”  While I love my United, I have two questions, the first for their publisher:  one is, who fact-checks these articles??  The second for the interviewee:  who has time to knit and/or crochet around all this stuff – and run a business too???  That said, the installations are just great.  So for any of you traveling on United any time soon, be sure to pick up a Hemispheres magazine to see all the photos.  Some are below.
