Brenna Kesson is a yarnbomber who reached out to me through ishknits.com back in 2012. She sent me a video of her yarnbomb on a staircase railing promoting equality and love and I really respected her for having such strong passion (that turned into action) at her age. We stayed in contact and from there, she sent me a yarnbomb that she completed it in her high school. I mean how cool is that, to yarnbomb inside your high school?! That’s courageous! I have really enjoyed being able to stay in contact with Brenna and watch her grow as an artist. I absolutely love her message and I can’t wait to see what she does next.
1. What got you interested in yarnbombing? My sophomore year I wanted to be different. I wanted to be artsy and fun but I was so not creative. Then I saw a book on Amazon called Yarnbombing by Mandy Moore and Leanne Prain. That was exactly what I wanted to do. I wanted to show off my creativity with yarn in a rebellious way! Then I was reading Teen Vogue and saw Ishknits in the magazine with a bicycle and flipped. So the book and Ishknits truly inspired me.
6. What are you working on now? right now I’m not working on anything. I have lots of school but just answering these questions is inspiring me to do something!
