This is the current advert here for one of our mobile (cell) phone companies, Vodaphone. It is about the new trend of urban guerilla knitting. Enjoy

Very cute. But I never have quite understood how people can actually afford the time or money to do that!!

The response to it has been amazing. There is a drive now for people to submit an A4 size of knitting to be made up into blankets for homeless people so i has achived more than just selling phones

I think it's a wonderful idea and I wish it would traverse the pond and inspire here in the States. I sent a link to my cousins in Holland to see if they have something like that there.

I believe the practice of tagging public structures with knitting started here in the states or Canada. There have been previous threads here at KH about it.

Do a search here and you will find them.

Here is one thread from June 2007 about knitted graffiti (http://www.knittinghelp.com/forum/showthread.php?t=58938).
It has been around for a while now. Location of poster is given as PDX which appears to be Portland International Airport (I am trusting my Google search without other confirmation).

I though I had seen other threads but only found that one. Perhaps a different name than grafiti[sic] knitting was used for the other threads.

*Thank you, Demonica! I don't know why the browser spell check didn't mark that for my attention. I know I didn't see it because I can't spell worth a darn. :oops:

I am glad to see it has crossed to pond to UK and perhaps on to Europe. :thumbsup:

Do a forum search for "knitting graffiti" (2 f's) and you'll see quite a few more...

My knitting group actually started a yarn bombing group for our area on Ravelry - we have a BIG 'bomb' planned for the end of the month-ish ;o) Someone already did the bike rack next to the bus station outside my LYS - it's so cute and bright and cheery, I just love it!
