heard of knitting graffiti?
 
Seems to be happening in Vancouver, Canada, and all over the world.

and there are some neat pics on this person's blog.

type into your browser www.yarnbombing.com

There is even a book on the subject.

Here is one person's defense of it, when accused of wasting good yarn; should be knitting for the needy etc.....
Quote:

To all of you puritanical sourpusses who think that the yarn bombers should be making sweaters for the needy...
Do you have some extra space in your house/apartment/condo? You should invite homeless people to live with you. You have room. Why are you wasting all that room on yourself? How selfish.
Do you spend your free time watching TV? You should be spending that time volunteering at homeless shelters and food banks. How dare you spend your free time on mindless entertainment when there are so many people out there suffering?
Nobody's allowed to have any fun until the world is perfect, huh?

A very interesting post...
Love the idea! :woot:
I remember on the approach to a little town in the southern portion of the province of B.C., the telephone poles were hung with a necktie each. Made the trip less dreary... LOL!
I live close to Vancouver and I haven't heard to this going on. I guess I better keep my eyes open! :thumbsup:
Wouldn't mind doing a bit of it, myself, but I wonder how you would knit around a tree? It must be a bit awkward, don't you think?

To Knit or not to Knit, that is the question...:knitting:
