like who’s gotta clean that shit up, and how long does it take that shit to get rank & moldy before someone is forced to clean up the nasty?
yarnbombing is NOT tenderpunk.
encouraging your friends to be mindful by not yarnbombing IS tenderpunk.
Literally like instead of yarn bombing, make blankets and sweaters. 1. They’re actually useful and 2. They’re not left there to get nasty and moldy forcing someone to clean it up
also yarnbombing on trees is really bad for them! it strangles necessary nutrients from the bark and when it starts rotting it introduces all kinds of harmful bacteria to the tree.
I remember a couple years ago someone was making scarves and sweaters and putting them on statues with little tags saying “if you’re cold, take this, it’s yours” and that seems like an infinitely better thing to do that “yarnbombing” tbh?
That is a much needed word for a lot of shit.
MeMum has been knitting jumpers, blankets, and beanies for the disadvantaged for years, now. Sometimes at warp nine. Frankly, I think she deserves more props for all her hard work.
I can not understand why someone would waste all that yarn on a work that has to wind up in a landfill. You could do so much good with it instead. Yarn is expensive and hard to find. At least it is for me.
Do some genuine good with your resources. That, I think, should be the essence of tenderpunk.
Also, if I see a yarn bombing, I am going to unpick that fucker and pass that shit onto someone who can use it properly. If possible, of course.
