Knitta Please.

Today I figured out exactly what I want to be when I grow up: a graffiti artist. Knitting graffiti. This really is the most wonderful concept I've heard of in awhile. There's a group of renegade knitters called Knitta Please who tag cities with their yarn! How cool is that?! I'm going to start a local Knitta chapter if anyone else is game. I can't wait! This summer I'll get a ton of colorful yarn at Joanne's and go to town. Watch out Columbus.

"Knitta began in August 2005, when the soon-to-be-Knittas were discussing their frustration over unfinished knitting projects: half-knitted sweaters and balls of yarn gathering dust. That afternoon, they knit their first door handle. Then it dawned on them… a tag crew of knitters, bombing the inner city with vibrant, stitched works of art, wrapped around everything from beer bottles on easy nights to public monuments and utility poles on more ambitious outings. With a mix of clandestine moves and gangsta rap — Knitta was born!"
Watch the video clips on their website of the Knittas in action. It's awesome, they even have a lookout man and a getaway car.
