GUERRILLA FASHION FOR CITIES
I can't believe I stumbled upon some actual works by urban guerrilla knitters that try to beautify cities. I've seen videos of the knitters in action on you tube and thought it was fantastic. In the middle of the night numerous knitters will converge on an agreed upon spot and begin covering poles with beautiful knitting.
Last weekend I was crossing the street in Berkeley when something caught my eye. It was knitting covering a pole! I was so excited and then we started looking around and noticed probably eight different poles covered with knitting. It is very subtle and no one else noticed until I let out my shout of surprise and delight. Of course I totally embarrassed my daughters but, even they admitted the knit covered poles were oddly interesting.
