I may be the last person to hear about this but I just have to say these are the coolest ladies ever. They "tag" the city of Houston with pieces of knitting. WHAT?! WHO?! I need to sit down.

OMG -- that is potentially the coolest thing I have ever seen in my life.  Not to mention hilarious!  I love that they all have street names!  I want a street name!

I want a street name - I used to have a 'gangster' name in college.

I was the Ballbreaker.

Yeah, they've also had a story written about them in the Houston Press.. made the cover too.

My friend claims he knows them.  oy, I'd really love to knit stuff for them.  I like my SNB group all right, but I want to do something more... deviant. haha

I'm in that area of town (Montrose) all the time and I still haven't seen any of their tags. Sad

they also have a website: http://knittaplease.com

How fun!

A group of us in college from one of my art classes used to do something similar - that entire semester long we'd create artwork in random places on campus - arrange piles of stones into a mosaic that formed an image. or draw huge murals on walkways with colored chalk.. hang a mobile of stuff from a tree branch where people simply could NOT ignore it because it would be in their way as they walked. Then we'd plan someone by it for the day to watch to see how people interacted with it.. would people walk right over one of our chalk murals drawn on a walkway.. or would they go around it..? stop to look at it? It was a load of fun!

We actually even got the ok from the campus police for some of the larger things we did - just so that nobody would report them as graffitti or defacing the campus or such. It was a good thing I had connections with several of the officers on the police force!

Knitting though - that's so cool - I wish I'd thought of that back then. I would have wrapped and padded one of the railings that was just hidiously ugly!

OMG - that so rocks. In highschool all my bfs were graffiti artists. I was a bomber-groupie (but cooler and not slutty - ok a little bit slutty but not whorey Wink).
