It’s way beyond a seasonal trend. It’s a way of being in the city. A way I am reminded of how things can always be warm and heartmelting, even in the coldest, strangest of cities. Knit your way through the day.
The first time I saw this type of Urban knitting manifestation was a few years back. I thought it was magical. At the time, I remember it was a bus and few trees, all the handy work of Madga Sayeg. Now, our dear friend Ellington sent me these images with the same Guerilla Knitting now known as Graffiti Knitting move taking over cities like Paris and Melbourne, Tel Aviv and Bali.

Magda, has, since 2005, become some kind of global ambassador for a move she wouldn’t have anticipated back in the day when she only put a knitted door handle to her clothes shop. It all reminds me of Forrest Gump and his running. Would this come to an abrupt, sudden stop, like Forrest? (hope not, it’s all so cute!)
