Crochet art is brightening up this neighborhood!
Bike rails and trees have been looking a lot more colorful thanks to a South Loop resident in Chicago. Valerie Sherman has taken her crocheting skills to the streets in what she calls yarn bombing. Sherman has been crocheting since she was a kid. She's been living in the city of Chicago for the past couple of years. Since the pandemic hit, Sherman wanted to brighten her neighborhood's bike trails and trees with her crochet work. She says it could take her 15-20 minutes to finish a piece, saying all of her pieces are done at home. Several neighbors have noticed her work around the South Loop so she's made an Instagram page so that others can follow her work. You can follow her at @valerieplz.
