Crochet Graffitti!

Via Neatorama, the Chicago Methods Reporter has posted an interesting article about the Micro-Fiber Militia - a group of urban knitters who have recently begun adding their knitted creations to Chicago's eyesores. The group notes the calm that comes from the act of knitting as a reason for their art, but they also enjoy the temporary aspect - if the weather is bad, their art is ruined.

The question that everyone wonders, however, is if this is considered vandalism. New York City famously declared war on graffitti in the 70's, and so Chicagoans wonder if this art will suffer a similar fate.

It appears not.

The police don't consider this vandalism, as the art is easily removed with a snip of the scissors. I could go on a rant about the this, but I'll save my personal feelings for myself :)

Check out the link for some great pics.

Have you read about Bansky in London? Similar, though he/she uses spray paint and also sells his/her work at galleries now for a lot of money.
