Graffiti knitting or Guerilla knitting

I was on the bus last week and spotted out of the corner of my eye a statue of Rabbie Burns with one rainbow knitted sock. Didn’t have time to take a picture but here’s some great examples of knitting brighting up city spaces.  Knit the City explain why – There’s a bubbling love of being alive behind our street art. Stony-faced and outraged art has its place, but life is also beautiful, enchanting, heart-squeezingly graceful and all kinds of weird. Consider it a stitched shove that whispers “Wake up! The world is a mad and marvellous place and we all get to live in it.”

And aren’t those penguins the cutest?
