We got bombed.....by yarn

Our office entrance got yarn bombed over the weekend! What is yarn bombing you ask?  According to this New York Times article,

Yarn bombing takes that most matronly craft (knitting) and that most maternal of gestures (wrapping something cold in a warm blanket) and transfers it to the concrete and steel wilds of the urban streetscape. Hydrants, lampposts, mailboxes, bicycles, cars — even objects as big as buses and bridges — have all been bombed in recent years, ever so softly and usually at night.

We really don't know who was behind our bombing, but that just adds to the fun and mystery of it all. Random acts of kindness can be expressed in so many ways, and this one was not only creative but convenient since holding onto a cold rail mid winter is no fun. So thanks anonymous yarn bomber! You took the time to make our days a little brighter and we salute you!
