This is a beautiful way to incorporate knitting into your environment. I wouldn’t call it knit graffiti at all, but it is very closely related. A garden fence knit out of twine. Simply beautiful!

The Calgary ArtBomber strikes again. (in a woolly and wonderful way at the New Science Centre)
See it all here.
I am happy to see some of the peices I knit last spring included in the display.

The newest from StitchLondon; a book launch and a pigeon:
I will be looking for this book, and probably making a pigeon or two
myself. So cute, and probably not so messy! Proceeds from sales of the new book will go cancer research.
Actually, if I lived in London, I would join the StitchLondon knitting group. It sounds like a lot of wild and woolly fun.
Speaking of wild and woolly fun, it must be time for me to start working on a knit graffiti piece for Calgary. Its been a while since I put up anything locally. Hmmmm, what will it be?
What I have been doing is a lot of knitting, just not graffiti. Have you heard of the beekeeper’s quilt from TinyOwlKnits? Its wonderfully addictive. Watch at your own risk.
Here are pictures of my growing pile of hexipuffs: (as you can now see, they like to get out and have fun!)

Go and see the amazing knitting and crocheting yarn bomb at the Devonport Wharf, Auckland, New Zealand.
Of course for me, and most of the rest of the world, we will have to be do our looking through pictures posted here:
The Woolly Walk Along is now installed at
the Devonport Wharf, Auckland, New Zealand.
I can just see the edge of my knitted piece in a couple of pictures. Its fun to have ‘visiual’ proof that my contribution made it all the way from Calgary! This is what I sent. See if you can find it on the handrail in Auckland.
Here it is in Auckland: Look closely on the right hand edge of the picture

I saw this report on yarn bombing on facebook, and just had to share it. The guy should maybe consider an acting career!
I have started working on my next project…. a bit is knit so far, but there is more planning to do. So, for now, just know that something is in the works!

Calgary to London is about 4400 miles. That is such a long way to send this bit of knitting, but, I sent it. Now lets hope it gets there in time. Go UPS Go. Go UPS Go.
I didn’t realize it would be so hard to photograph approximately 9 meters of knitting goodness. LOL … however, the pictures do give you a bit of an idea of its lonnnnnng snakey shape, and a bit of the wild colours I used. Most of it is knit with 2 strands of acrylic yarn held together on JUMBO 12.75mm (US size 17) knitting needles.
As you can surely guess this is my almost too late contribution to the Knitted Maze, in the UK. If you have a chance to see it, please do, and take your camera. Among other exciting things, there will be about a mile of knitting, formed into a maze.
