Knit Graffiti!


This photo was taken by a friend somewhere in Paris, and it brings joy to my heart. I'm trying to imagine the plan of action for this little pole cozy, and the thought that went into it. Was it clandenstine night knitting, perhaps with headlamp, or maybe in the light of day innocently knitting away. It's hard to imagine anyone yelling "Hey kid! Stop that knitting at once." Which is exactly what makes the decision to alter public property in this way so interesting.

I worry from time to time that one of our neighborhood taggers will one day choose our studio upon which to leave his/her mark. But I sure wouldn't mind showing up tomorrow morning to a knitted door.
