7 wheels, the 7 energy points within our bodymind. Each wheel with two hues of the particular color, to represent the light and dark within everything in existence. Blending of these 2 colors in 3 equal points within each wheel in representation of the mystical harmony of light and dark, good and evil. An asymetrical and balancing spectrum beaming out from both sides of the chakras.

“Yarn bombing,” for those out of the loop, is a public and oft-times guerrilla art form in which all kinds of objects, from parking meters to hulking vehicles, get covered in brightly covered yarn. Some may remember the Mexico City bus stitched over in 2008 by Magda Sayeg, often called the “mother of yarn bombing.” Typically, yarn bombers ply their craft in urban areas for maximum exposure.

Grace Brett was Selkirk’s oldest yarn bomber at an experienced 104.
