graffiti knitting

I love seeing graffiti knitting (aka- yarn bombing/ guerilla knitting) in cities. It makes me smile everytime I see it. It has this funny, semi- sentimental element that always brightens my day. The movement started in Houston Texas and has made it around the world. Here are a few of my favorite photos of pieces that have been done:

Bike in Brooklyn (one of many).. These are generally kind of ugly in my opinion, but the work and detail is amazing!
