Yarn Bombing...

As if you didn't already have enough to knit on your plate.  It's the beginning of summer and perhaps you are looking for new ideas to inspire your knitting.  A big project might feel like too much right now in this heat.  Maybe you're tired of knitting the same type of project and need something to inspire you.  Well, here's a cool site called The Knitted Lanscape to give you some ideas!  If your garden is flagging...there is nothing like a new single skein of yarn to inspire you to knit up something to tuck inside your garden beds. 
This style of knitting is inspired by something called Yarn Bombing.  Yarn bombing is something that folks do to improve the landscape or to create a surpise for others to enjoy.  Alot of this type of activity takes place in urban settings.  Knitters and crocheters eveywhere create pieces big and small to entice us to look at the lanscape and art with a fresh eye.  You never know where you might spot one of these creations.
(disclaimer: we don't necessarily agree with all the ideas surrounding yarnbombing)
