Yarnbombing, PDX style

Not content with simply making kooky hats or yarnbombing another bike stand, fiber artist Tyler Mackie decided she wanted to make art that would make a difference. Bridge for Blankets is her project to celebrate the 100th birthday of the Broadway Bridge during the PDX Bridge Festival on August 10.

She has a fundraising goal of $10,500 and is looking for volunteers to knit and help promote her effort to make art that will be recycled into warm wool blankets for the homeless. And that kind of spirit is worth supporting, don't you think?
