Urban Trend - Knitting Grafitti

Pin It
Love love love the trend of knitting grafitti or yarn bombing! It is such a sweet way to add color and warmth to a dull grey cityscape. Walking along a big city street you would hardly expect to see electricity poles and telephone booths lovingly wrapped in knitting. It brings an instant smile to my face and not only brightens up spaces but makes them feel cozy and homely too. What's more it's completely legal, you cannot arrest me for knitting Mr.Policeman!
