ishknits asked: Hey,
I just wanted to say thank you for your comments about the NYTimes article about yarnbombing. I have been really turned off to the audacity of Olek's comments about yarnbombing. I understand that she may want to be considered an artist and not a 'crafty graffiti artist', but I feel as though it is very wrong to do that at the expense of others. On a personal note, I have felt the need to annoy her just a little. I realized that she recently provided a wrapped bike to the Renwick 'craft' museum in DC for National Yarnbombing day... I just find the irony overwhelming!! So i left them a yarnbomb myself. Anyway, it feels great to know that I wasn't the only one who noticed! Thanks again.

This message made my day! I’m glad to hear you agree with me, and really love your work. I think its really super important to not exclude people from art. Art shouldn’t be intimidating, it should be something that is approachable and inclusive! Keep doing what you do :)
