Knitta please – Tagging crew of knitters

I have written before about an artist that crocheted sweaters for trees. This time I have stumbled upon a tag crew that use knitting as their spray can!

Knitta please started back in 2005 after a discussion about the frustration on having loads of unfinished knitting projects. They came up with the brilliant idea of using their unfinished work as tagging.

Here is a few examples of their work:
Knitta please in Manhatten, New York

And here is a video of some of Knitta Please crew in action:

Feel inspired to start with knit tagging?

    There is a really ugly fire hydrant on my street. Maybe they can tag it and beautify the neighborhood at the same time.

    This is very very cool. Have you suggested knit-tagging as a story for web urbanist? They love this sort of stuff. http://weburbanist.com/

    But what if you crochet? *grin*

    Seriously, if these gals get arrested or ticketed I’ll know we are at the end of…something. (Damn I’m tired).

    Very cool, indeed.

    What a fun site! I was initially interested because I saw your entrecard with the sheep over at entrecard. Male Knitter. Fun. Quirky. Worth a return trip.

    Hi Knitter,

    Thanks to Entrecard I now know of your site! This is awesome. My mom used to knit for my siblings and I when we were younger, but these lost out to the mass produced ones that were available off the rack. I missed the hand knitted ones though.

    She used these on our foot rugs, our bathroom rugs, table tops, and all sorts of places. Seeing that you even include lamp posts is something else! It’s fun being here. rest assured I’ll be back. –Durano, done!
