Just when things couldn't get better for the ever-popular Grand Central Market, today comes word that the place has been yarn-bombed. With a group of knitters and crocheters from the Downtown Women's Center, LA Public Library, Braille Institute, Yarn Bombing Los Angeles, and volunteers from around the world, the popular Downtown market's columns have been pasted from top to bottom with colorful thread into a projec called Yarn-O-Polis.

In addition to making the interior just a little less drab, the original yarn artwork gives a little more umph to all those Instagram photos coming out of the market. The yarn will be on display from now until January 2015.
