R2-D2 yarnbombs are the…bomb?

Sarah Rudder has come up with what Star Wars fans would deem to be the ultimate yarnbomb – thanks to her lovingly knitted R2-D2 design that was used to cover a concrete traffic barrier in Bellingham, WA. Taking 1,200 yards of yarn in order to end up with the 23″ tall, 56″ diameter R2-D2 yarnbomb, which is a full and cozy astromech. Once it is placed over a traffic barrier, you can be sure that passers-by will have a field time snapping photo after photo. One thing’s for sure, I would not want to leave it there for too long, not until the resident neighborhood dogs come and start marking their territory though.
