Have You Seen This 'Yarn Bomb' in Rocky Point?

Yarn bombing craze hits a Rocky Point stop sign.

If you stop at the corner of Lincoln Drive and Park Drive right off of Broadway in Rocky Point, you'll notice one of the most colorful and unique stop signs you'll see.

Patch reader Bre Candela snapped a photo of the stop sign, which was apparently hit with a 'yarn bomb' to make it look a bit like a very large flower.

If you're not familiar with the crazy, yarn bombing has become popular over the past few years and is basically crochet and knit 'graffiti'.

Amazing the wonderful things are kids are learning in school. Those skills are the ones job seekers are looking for! Get real and do something that is productive.

I think what you meant was "our" kids .. How much did you learn in school? Get real and learn how to spell.

"It's such a human condition, whether you're a great track star or a great knitting person or you paint watercolors - someone knows who you are." - Tony Curtis This seems to be serving the same purpose as graffiti, except the "tag" is non-eponymous. And it looks cute.

Remember when it was a crime to deface government property? Now we teach the kids its alright and even encourage it! America is getting soft, thanks to those who should teach otherwise. It isnt cute, nor is it legal.

Justin, get a life. And it's "our" kids not are kids. So much for all your talk about education.

Still on the spell check? Stay on the topic.

Btw .."Get a life" falls in the same stupid line as "whatever".. Both indicate there is no response with an educated reply. Ps.."have a nice day"

As long as it's not blocking the sign from view or permanently damaging the sign, it is totally legal.

Justin, you blame youngsters for this...why do you assume it is a youngster? I'm thinking that knitting and crocheting are not popular pastimes with the younger set. Maybe there is an adult out there that just wants to make his/her hometown look nicer. I notice your comments all over this site are ALWAYS negative. Maybe if you spent more time away from the computer and out with friends and family, your view on life might lighten up!

Hear hear!!!
