Yarn bombers cover Melbourne with guerilla knitting

It's called yarn bombing, yarnstorming, guerilla knitting or graffiti knitting and it's taking over Melbourne.

Basically trees, bike stands, park benches or anything still on the street is being covered by knitters using eye catching colours.

At the beginning it divided the community. Was it vandalism or harmless fun?

Now however, Melbournians seem to be united and they love it.
