APPLETON - Knitters call it a yarn bomb and one has splashed downtown Appleton with color.
Art work is often described as bright and colorful, but usually you can't sit on it.
"I think it's wonderful, it really adds to the beautification of downtown," said Kathy Juedes, Town of Menasha resident.
A group of about 60 knitters and crocheters put needle to park bench, lamp post and flower bed along College Avenue and organizers say it was all for fun.
"We had numerous people stop to ask us what we were doing and some just stopped to say thank you which was awesome," said Kassie Rose, Fiber Rain project coordinator.
"It's neat, I'm a knitter so I am enjoying it," said Gloria Marecek of Appleton.
Visitors we spoke to say the project is a welcome addition to downtown and businesses say it brings visitors in the door.
"People are coming in and they are telling me they are just walking downtown just to see this so that brings them in and whatever it takes to bring them in I'm all for it," said Just Act Natural owner J.C. Paustian.
Rose says the Fiber Rain project came together in just a couple of weeks, and given the response she says they hope to do something similar again soon.
"People come down here and they walk around and they look and I like it, yeah a cool thing to visit today," said Barb Tuman of Wausau.
Rose says the yarn art will stay up through this weekend.
