A Whole New Kind of Yarnbombing

So last week I was in Vienna for work (I know, poor me, right?), but that means I didn’t have time to do anything interesting, knitting-wise.  I even somewhat outsmarted myself by trying to pack my carry-on light and thus leaving all my knitting in my checked luggage (not my best move, especially when we’re talking trans-Atlantic flight with an in-seat, on demand movie player).

There was a bit of a scare when I tried to remedy that mistake on the way home – the security guy in Vienna searched my bag after the X-Ray, found the knitting, pulled the needle out (not out of the knitting, luckily), compared the needle to his badge and his finger, then gave me a stern look and said, “Don’t bring this again.”  I meekly agreed (although I suspect I will in fact try to fly with knitting again), and he sent me on my way with knitting intact.  Heathrow security had no issues with it, though, so maybe the first guy just didn’t like knitters.

Anyway, the thing I wanted to write about is the comic my husband posted while I was gone.  There’s a new version of a game he likes coming out, and in this newest version you can make weapons out of stuff you find in the world.  Since earlier games had the character collect wool, he’s wondering if, maybe, there might be a way to create Yarn Bombs.
