Smock Bombing?

I am sure most of you have seen or read something about the latest world-wide knitting/crochet craze of yarn bombing?

Quick catch up for those who haven't. Knitted or crocheted pieces are wrapped around an object that is on public display, such as a statue; tree; fence. The pieces are like a patchwork covering the object, but still allowing the shape to be seen. It is a form of graffiti, but it unlike the paint usually used, the yarn pieces can easily be removed.

This piece of yarn bombing is on a tree outside the library where my chapter had a smocking display in Febraury for National Smocking Month.

I was just wondering-should smockers start smock bombing?

Note: As mentioned, this is a form of graffiti and could be subject to prosecution as such, so SAGANews and SAGA do not advise smock bombing something unless you have written permission to do so!
