Vigilante Knitters

So the new thing with those crazy youngsters today is Yarnbombing. Remember that post I did, lo those many years ago about the people knitting sweaters for trees? Well it's grown into some insane proportions.

And I have to say, that my earlier skepticism of this activity has evaporated and heartfelt admiration has taken its place. It was the pompom on the end of the tank's gun barrel that won me over.

TimePhotos has a nice sampling of some knitting graffiti. I particularly liked the legwarmers on the immense statue in France.

So what form of harmless craziness would you inflict on the world if you could. Obviously mine is this blog. What would yours be?

Yeah, okay, that tank cozy is pretty freaking cool. If I could knit, I'd do something like that.

I've always been kind of proud of my crocheting, but that bus and tank put me to shame.
If I had the time and money, I would randomly plant flowers.

Lol, guys!

Sue as vigilante floral landscaper. I can totally see it.

What tank is complete without its tank cozy! LOL!

Mina Lobo said...

ROTFL, a tank cozy!!!!! LOVE IT! I've been wanting to make myself a blanket arranged similarly to that particular design, except I'm really a novice knitter...

The only kinda crazy I want to inflict on the world is my writing and music...all in good time. :-)
