Yarn lovers everywhere are sure to get a kick out of the latest yarn-bombing to make the news. According to an article published by The Denver Post on Dec. 2, a Denver man yarn-bombed the “The Dancers” statue at the Denver Center for Performing Arts on Sunday.
The Denver Post reports that Kyle Williams who performs under the name K. Wullums originally set out to dress the statue in a pair of shorts, but with a little encouragement from a friend decided that a speedo would be “really funny.”
Williams says it took him nine skeins of yarn, and three and a half weeks to design and crochet the massive pair of speedos, which are made to look like the Colorado state flag.
The garment is reportedly close to 15-feet long, and was secured to the statue with zip-ties.
Williams told reporters that the “Speedo Project” was his debut into the world of yarn-bombing.
