Sabine Schennach of Austria takes measurements for her own yarn bombing project. (courtesy photo)

You’ve probably seen the reports about the Dallas Yarn Bombers who go around town colorfully knitting streetscapes. In September, they made an even bigger splash at the Winspear Opera House, which inspired a similar project thousands of miles away.

Neighbor Judy Smith is a W.T. White High School host parent for Stephanie Schennach, an exchange student from Austria. Stephanie took pictures of the Winspear project and sent them home to her mom Sabine Schennach, who is now starting her own yarn bombing effort around her neighborhood.

She’s calling it Project Dallas, in honor of our own yarn bombers. Sabine has been going around taking measures with a photographer in tow.

So, through a connection with our neighborhood school, a little slice of Dallas creativity has made its way to Europe.
