Public knitting

By Lorenzo

Just next to Yarraville Station, an act of public knitting was recently committed.


I found it quite charming.

This is also the Saturday chit-chat post.

    Hmm, must ask ShadoStitch if he’s been on holiday down under lately…

    If I’m going to do that much knitting, I’ll be knitting myself a jumper.

    Outside my local library someone has knitted a whole bicycle as well as the bicycle stand. These hooligan knitters must be stopped before they get completely out of control! 😉

    Utterly charming. Somehow random acts of craft and beauty are touching.

    I’m torn about guerilla knitting. Part of my says it is charming, and unexpected, and whimsical. But part of me is with Steve at the Pub @2: I like to knit with a purpose. But not everyone does, I guess. And the colours are lovely.

    More commonly known as “Yarn Bombing”

    Today’s puzzle is:

    Why is it that when a Scotsman moves to England the IQ of both countries improves?

    Yes, wittyknitter, but what do you do with all those crappy acrylic/30+ micron yarns?

    All that trouble for a good laugh. At least these knitters don’t get into knots about pub fights and public violence.

    Anybody into steampunk should have had a ball watching the Paralympic closing ceremony? There were several manufactures I would dearly love to drive down George Street Sydney at peak hour 😉
