Knitta Please

I've been aware of this phenomenon for awhile now, always wondering who these anonymous crafters are, where it all began, and why. Finally I fell upon Knitta Please, "warming the world, one car antenna at a time." This guerrilla state of mind has made its way into the worlds of both art and marketing. It is seen in graffiti, Banksy's Stencils, and quotes slipped into library books. Because the techniques are cheap, if not free, there is little risk. You don't have to try to sell the idea, get sponsors, or loans, or grants... This is a fairly new wave that is attracting the best lateral thinkers. Hopefully, others will follow the steps of the knittas and keep it thought-provoking and vibrant and orange coloured.
