YARNSTORMING BY KNIT THE CITY

This post is dedicated to the art of “yarnstorming.” If you haven’t heard of yarnstorming – its been described as another form of graffiti. Tagging using yarn instead of spray paint. Clever, right? Yarnstorming has several aka’s that include, graffiti knitting, yarnbombing and guerilla knitting.

Recently some pretty popular yarnstormers in London, dubbed Knit the City, individually known as The Fastener & The Deadly Knitshade (these are by far the dopest names ever!!) decided to give up their underground knitting lifestyle to team up with Toyota for its Positive Power Campaign to help promote their Prius Plug-In Hybrid vehicles.

I think the Knit the City gang did a great job with brightening up this Brixton neighborhood! Thoughts?
