More knitting graffiti...

Or, as they call it now - yarn bombing. I like the 'knitting graffiti' better, because there is no need for such as violent word as 'bombing'. Let's create beautiful things, not have a war.

“Street art and graffiti are usually so male dominated,” Ms. Hemmons said. “Yarn bombing is more feminine. It’s like graffiti with grandma sweaters.” Read the article in NY Times if you like. The NYT has a slideshow of some cool images, like the Rocky statue in a pink vest.

And here, a great photo of yarn bombing / knitting graffiti in Austin, TX, by Eric Cunningham on Flickr.
