Urban Knitting in Zurich
Using the slogan "Wool in the City" a bunch of creative people treated the city of Zurich to a new type of friendly graffiti this weekend – Urban Knitting. Ignoring warnings from the police, teams of knitters hung their works from lampposts, sculptures, park benches, even fire hydrants, in what must be one of the most inoffensive mass illegal actions ever. The phenomenon started in Austin, Texas in 2005 and has since spread to the likes of New York and Berlin. Unlike traditional graffiti it causes no damage at all.
