Graffiti Knitting

I love the creative spirit of Houston based Knitta. Inspired by graffiti art, Knitta was formed in 2005 when a group of knitters were looking for other uses for their unfinished projects and unused balls of yarn.

They came up with the idea to take their knitting to the public sphere, wrapping everything from light posts to fire hydrants. Unlike graffiti art, Knitta's work is made from colorful yarn that does not damage property and is not permanent.
  • How can you transform something by changing its context?
