I created a new post over at Miaverse.com:
Here’s a schnippet:
Urban graffiti is not a new concept, and neither is yarn art or knitting. A spin on traditional spray-painted graffiti is knitting graffiti, most recently nicknamed “yarn bombing.”
Typically done in run-down areas of cities all over the world, an individual or groups of individuals stealthily wrap items in knitted yarn stitches. Much of the time the yarn bombing is done at night, but sometimes groups get together and cover poles, posts, signs, trees, and/or fences in broad daylight for fun or to bring awareness to the city’s cultural climate.
Sometimes the knitting ninjas leave their mark, but many run the risk of a fine or worse depending upon the municipal rules and regs when it comes to knitting.
