Yarn Bombing the Steps of Helsinki's Cathedral

WOW! All these beautiful afghans paving the stairs to the cathedral were handknit and eventually donated to charity. To yarn bomb is an extraordinary thing in itself but to provide warmth to 1000's in addition is just plain humbling. Imagine the many hands that crocheted these blankets. Young ones. Old ones. Female ones. Male ones. All different colors. Imagine the thoughts that went into each stitch from all those people. And then imagine all those who received these. Just think about the energy in each one of these afghans. That's got to be giving peace and love a chance.
