Keep those "Etsy Addicts" comments coming peeps!

In the mean time, I wanted to share with you a little art instillation by Knitta, Please that went up on my street a few weeks ago!

"Knitta began in August 2005, when the soon-to-be-Knittas were discussing their frustration over unfinished knitting projects: half-knitted sweaters and balls of yarn gathering dust. That afternoon, they knit their first door handle. Then it dawned on them… a tag crew of knitters, bombing the inner city with vibrant, stitched works of art, wrapped around everything from beer bottles on easy nights to public monuments and utility poles on more ambitious outings."

The group has "tagged" an impressive amount of places such as Paris, El Salvador, Montreal and yes The Great Wall of China!

Their latest vibrant color bomb went off on Montague St. here in Brooklyn. I must admit to being a bit skeptical at their allure at first, but the cozy little parking meters now bring a smile to my face each time I hit the streets :)

Peach picks tomorrow! Woo Hoo!!
