Knit Grafitti

My family and I recently took a wonderful vacation to Northern California and San Francisco. We had a marvelous time- enjoyed all the sights- even visited a few yarn shops. We parked our car next to this bike rack in Haight- Asbury one night. My husband said look at that- and took this picture. It is always exciting to see unexpected knitting and color!

Oh, and look at this- have any of you seen this in your favorite Whole Foods parking lot?

Or this? This tree will be a little warmer this Fall.

Here is a short video and news clip about another town that has been experiencing a bit of Knit Grafitti. It makes me wonder what we could all do to brighten our surroundings with our brightly colored knitting!

'Midnight Knitter' Pulls The Wool Someone is spinning quite a yarn over one New Jersey shore town.An unidentified culprit dubbed the "The Midnight Knitter" has been covering tree branches and lamp poles with little sweaters in West Cape May, N.J. under cover of darkness, CBS station WCBS-TV reports.Mayor Pam Kaithern said police were looking into the guerrilla crocheting, which technically is against the law because it is being done on public property without permission.Despite the illegality of the act, the town's mayor and residents admit they're enthralled by the rainbow of colors that has popped up.Resident Susan Longacre takes a walk each morning in Wilbraham Park, where several tree branches and light poles have gotten the treatment. She thinks it's great.Even those who are not thrilled admit the yarn is better than spray-painted graffiti.West Cape May is about 147 miles south of New York City.
