I have wanted to do this for a long time. And last night while watching President Obama’s inauguration, I was finally inspired. I was happy to share the joy of the day with my children.

I love it.

I put one up on a stop sign by my work, which is next door to a bar. It only lasted about a month before the drunk a-holes burned it off! Can you believe it?

I saw a very long one of these on a stop sign in Ottawa.  Don't get the reasoning behind it.  Thought it was just a general joke.  Obama was just here tho...

So why'd you do it?

I love it.  I don't seem to have the guts to do something so simple. Roll Eyes

You know how graffiti artists paint walls and such as an artistic or whatever expression (some are cool, some not so cool), well this is knit graffiti, far less harmful to property, but still spreading yarn beauty in the world.  Just google knit graffiti and you will see that more people are doing it.  It is just something fun and harmless.
