This week we began our crochet module in my textiles course. For those of you who know me, or mayhaps even own one of my scarves / beanies, you can imagine how elated I am. To introduce this module to us, Vic De La Rosa showed us a little slide show consisting of some really amazing textile works, as well as some craft bombing groups, such as Knitta Please. This group consists of taggers, just like any graffiti gang, and they apply knitted sleeves to public furniture, such as parking meters, telephone poles, pipes, stop signs, door handles, etc.

I highly recommend you check out their site. I mean, they even “tagged” the great wall of china. how badass is that?
