Dozens of area knitters congregated at the 18th Street Arts Center in Santa Monica for an evening of yarnbombing last Saturday. The event, which took place around international yarnbombing day.Co-organizer Arzu Arda Kosar told Turnstyle News:

We really wanted people to come and hang out together. We were hoping for some sort of synergy that would help people get to know each other or help them learn new techniques or find like-minded others that they could connect and network with. We also hoped people would bounce around ideas and create new projects. In fact, it has already happened. Several of us participated in an empathy circle for the Japanese disaster. We made a 12-foot knit red circle. We wanted to so something for the community.
