Books get adapted for film all the time but it’s not often that they get adapted for yarn bombs!

Hi, Jenny Brown – crochet pattern designer, charity crocheter, and yarnbomber – has changed all that with her amazing yarn bomb of the children’s classic, The Snow Day by Ezra Jack Keats. Did you read that when you were a kid? I sure did!

It’s about a boy named Peter who explores his neighborhood after the first snowfall of the season.

According to Wikipedia, “the inspiration for Peter’s character came from a Life magazine photo article from 1940, and Keats’ desire to have minority children of New York as central characters in his stories.”
