Yes, graffiti does seem to spawn other graffiti.  There's a book you can read on this very topic....  It's called The Tipping Point.  I forget who it's by.
I think your mouse is very cute and you shouldn't worry about it b/c I don't think that it's really graffiti anyways.

i live in an area that tends to get "tagged" alot. My fence has been tagged twice this summer with very innapropriate sayings. (hopefully not directed at me since I'm new to the neighborhood and haven't offended these losers). Generally the people who are doing it are marking their terratory. The type your mentioning isn't the normal tager but more like a crazy person's ranting at the world. These type tend to be random and not spawned by anything you put up. (Unless your mouse somehow reminded him of 911 and his conspiracy theory) I also don't think your cute knit mouse would spawn a tagging war between gangs or holligans.

I think you should cover your town in the cute knit mice. that would be awesome! If I saw your knit mouse on a wall of a building I would smile because it would brighten my day.

Like CamOovas said, regardless of the name we knitters and fellow crafters give these urban interventions, I don't think people who see a random knit piece on the streets would feel "yeah! liberal graffiti zone!" and just start spraying everything. I think it was probably just an unfortunate coincidence.

About the mouse in itself, it's so cute! And I don't even like pink, but it's so cute! I'd love to find it while walking on the streets. (As long as I have my camera with me, of course, because it'd make me very sad to not be able to document it.)

Firstly, I'd have to say I agree with what a lot of people have been saying in that (1) I love your mouse and it's ADORABLE! and (2) I don't think that it spawned that other graffiti, mainly due to the fact that I don't think that a lot of people see it as "graffiti" so much as "decoration."

first of all, I adore your mouse and I want to say that I find knit graffiti hilarious and HARMLESS. I think this sort of thibg really would brighten up most anyones day. That being said I am a firm believer that no good deed goes unpunished. You can never know what the effect of a simple act will be. People cannot fail to do what they percieve as good for fear of someone retaliating in a bad way. I think that is an even bigger problem.

Is it jerk-y to bump up your own post?  I just wanted everyone to see the new photo update!

Have you seen http://www.knittaplease.com/?
It's a group of people who started knit graffiti-ing their city in 2005. They have some pretty cool stuff Smiley

Yes, I'm a big fan of the Knitta crew!  Perhaps I should look further into it... I think you just need to attach a knitta tag to be affiliated?
