Graffiti as defined in the dictionary is: (used with a plural verb) markings, as initials, slogans, or drawings, written, spray-painted, or sketched on a sidewalk, wall of a building or public restroom, or the like: These graffiti are evidence of the neighborhood's decline.
So on a random tour of youutube looking for something else entirely, I came across the video filmed in Texas of a group of radical knitters. Search for knittasplease and you will see how this group travels around in a camper and attach knitting to bridges, signposts, handrails, signs, etc. with a lookout a getaway driver!
I then found these photos of knitters expressions of the love of their craft and perhaps a deep and meaningful political statement.
We KnitWits will be meeting secretly to discuss the application of our own "art" installation.Code word to access the meeting- April Fool's Day!
