Knitta: Bombing The City With Yarn


knitta

We’ve all seen graffiti in our cities but I just heard about a new “type” of graf – one that involves yarn instead of paint.  Knitta started in 2005 as a collective of knitters who were frustrated by their unfinished knitting projects.  Their frustration grew into “a tag crew of knitters, bombing the inner city with vibrant, stitched works of art, wrapped around everything from beer bottles on easy nights to public monuments and utility poles on more ambitious outings.”  They’ve been around the world spreading their knit message across the streets of Paris, New York and San Francisco.  Check out their site and see all the places around the world that they’ve “bombed.”
