Knitted Graffiti

Tuesday, April 27, 2010
Magda Sayeg from "Knitta Please" is making the world prettier one woolly legwarmer at the time! She travels the world and creates handcrafting colourful cozies for fire hydrants, beautiful whole body overalls for trees and everything else she finds inspiring!

What a great way to make your city more beautiful! Makes me smile every time I look at it....especially the tree.
How do you feel about this type of artistic expression?

Do you know how to knit? I don’t but I wish I could!

Kisses,

I have no idea how to knit, but I've had several people tell me that it's a good hobby for me to have with all the traveling and all. That knitted tree is so sweet! I've never seen anything like it before.
