So this is old news by like 5 days, and I know I talk all kinds of smack on Pittsburgh (it’s my hometown, I’m allowed!), but sometimes this city can be so fucking amazing. Currently, one Andy Warhol Bridge (he was from Pittsburgh, in case you didn’t know) has been yarn-bombed and it is just the cutest/funnest/prettiest/coziest fucking thing to walk across right now. Even better than walking all over Henry, and you KNOW how much fun that is for me.

The Knit the Bridge Project was created by the Fiberarts Guild of Pittsburgh and the result ended up being the grandest example of yarn-bombing in the United States, which is cool in and of itself, but the best part is that once the installation comes down, all of the panels are going to be washed and donated to homeless shelters, nursing homes and animal shelters. If that doesn’t make your heart feel all cozy and swaddled, then seek help, I don’t know.

It was nice to see people taking their time across the bridge and SMILING. One guy was even singing loudly, that’s how happy the bridge was making him. (Actually, I think he was under the influence.)

The Law Firm is lurking somewhere in this picture.

I wish it could stay like this forever. You have until September 6th to come out and see it.

  1. That’s pretty awesome, but for real, how much time would that take?! It’s incredible.

  2. I love these pictures! I’m originally from Pittsburgh (born and raised!) and I love to see the beauty of the city!
