Someone is stealing the joy delivered by the yarn bomber.

A couple weeks ago we told you about the mysterious Lakewood yarn bomber, who is dressing neighborhood trees, hydrants and posts in knitted accessories or, as she calls them, “Random Acts of Art”. The motive? Only to spread good cheer. But now, someone (ones) apparently thinks the knitted creations (maybe because they are mostly in public spaces) are there for the taking. That’s right—K Witta the knitter says several of her pieces have been taken. Three of the four fire-hydrant sweaters: gone, she laments. So sad — how will the fire hydrants stay warm now?
