guerilla knitting

I went to visit Meera in Stockholm at the weekend.

Along with lots of excellent coffee shops, impressive kitchenware and an archipelago of astounding beauty, Stockholm also has rather a lot of knitting graffiti.

Apparently, artists knit onto whichever lampost, doorknob or car aerial takes their fancy and refuse to be moved along until they've completed the row they're working on.

No one is quite sure just how many Swedish guerilla knitters are out there but they're doing a cracking job, brightening up the streets, making people smile and keeping chilly lamp posts nice and toasty.
