Yarn bombing is an epidemic. And we're giving our West-Coast besties a fair waring; We've seen NYC bikes, street lamps, and even our beloved Wall-Street bull statute yarn bombed halfway to oblivion and, as yet, no one has been able to stop it. Even Sunglass Hut has fallen prey to the yarn bombers as the notoriously crafty KNITTA (a.k.a. artist Magda Sayeg) has taken some of the eyewear purveyor's best styles and hand-wrapped them in one-of-a-kind kaleidoscopic patterns. Sure, you could pick up a of these colorful, charming shades to block the SoCal sun. Yes, they probably would go with any multi-color outfit or brighten up any monochromatic look. And, true, Sunglass Hut will donate $30 to OneSight, making glasses available to those in need. But it's a slippery slope. One day it's bikes and sunnies, and the next thing you know – BAM – all of West Hollywood Boulevard has been yarn bombed beyond recognition. So remember, if you don't want to see giant palm trees wrapped in beautiful, bizarre, wooly, rainbow patterns, stay away from the Sunglass Hut.
