Jessie Hemmons is the one responsible for the awesome ishknits yarn bombing pieces. Yarn bombing is like graffiti, but using yarn instead of spray paint! The featured ishknits yarn bombing can be seen on the subway seats on the Market-Frankford Line of Philadelphia in the United States. The seats look so colorful and cozy compared to the bland blue they used to be! If there was a yarn-bombed seat on your subway would you sit on it?

Jessie Hemmons has done many yarn bombing projects that have gained her popularity with many Internet blogs, magazines and newspapers. She has also started a movement of other yarn bombers who follow in her footsteps. The ishknits yarn bombing that took place in Philadelphia was photographed by Conrad Benner.
