Urban Knitting: Taking It To The Street

You may have seen Alex's crocheted bunny body suit, but I'll see that handiwork and raise you Urban Knitting. Trees, street signs, statues and gas stations, nothing is safe from these rebels of the wool.

I think what is somewhat ironic is that we (jafagirl website) have been advertizing Project Linus for about a year on our knit knot tree page.

I never view reused/recycled materials or art supplies as a waste, nor do I feel there is an obligation to single out which materials I should donate for charity or otherwise. Knit graffiti, such as our knit knot tree, gave much pleasure to our local community and to the local children and that is never a waste.

As for how I spend my time as an artist, as a community volunteer, I don't really feel it is for others to dictate or determine how and what is useful for me to do.
You can see some of our public work, free art, knit graffiti etc at: www.jafagirlart.com

ps. I think the gas station is fabu and lovely to see some crochet too.

all the best

Rocky Rook: At least I make something pretty and functional with my "unclassified psychological ailment." As opposed to slinging baseless pseudo-intellectual sarcasm...

I'm getting kinda tired of all the wasted yarn on these "knit graffiti" projects. It would be better spent on making more useful things, like blankets for keeping the homeless or premature babies warm, or comforting a traumatized child.
