I can't say that I am among the privileged who have witnessed first hand the works of street artists working in the medium of yarn. Guerrilla knitting, yarn bombing, lamppost knitting are just a few of the names attached to the art movement. We have Magda Sayeg, of Houston Texas, to thank for it. That is to the boredom that led her to knit a doorknob cozy in 2005. From there the movement grew. Ladies were out at all hours of the night resurrecting knitting projects and covering lampposts, cars, railings, and statues. Yes, even the Wall Street Bull received a new pick camo coat for The Christmas of 2010. Resembling cozy graffiti, Guerrilla knitting has spread around the world. Cities all over the United States, Australia, Scandinavia, and South Africa have been knit upon. In some areas there are political connotations and in others the knitting is simply art to put a softer happy face on Urban harshness. Either way, the brightly colored knitting brings smiles around the globe. I love the idea of ladies out in the dark with their needles sneaking yarnage onto all sorts of surfaces and the surprised wonder of commuters the next morning pausing just long enough to smile at a lamppost cozy or a statue adorned with knitwear. Knit on sisters, knit on.
