Yarn Bombing: The Feminine Graffiti

I'm in love with this story. One of the knitting gangs is even called "Knitta Please." I know one of my professors at GW is really watching the craft movement closely for her research, which makes me think this phenomenon is not going to fade away. What do you think? Is it art????

Here's a happily-orchestrated video of one of the knit-artists bombing the Bull on Wall Street, worth a watch:

I LOVE this trend/movement, whatever we want to call it, SO much! The potholes in Paris are my favorite, I think. I'm going to learn to knit then start a chapter of Knitta, Please in Utah.

And I DO think it's art. It takes skill and creativity and it's beautiful. It's not graffiti.
