Knit Graffiti with Amanda

Since I'm cutting down on my facebook time I thought the blog could be a good place to again share and collect all the projects I keep working on. Recently I got to know Amanda who also loves to knit and we discovered both of us had a common dream to do Knit Graffiti.

We have already put up a few pieces around the Fountain House where we hang about during the days. This Sunday we choose to move closer to the inner city of Lund scouting for good spots to pimp up.

Apart from the satisfaction of knitting and nice outdoorsy time, we got some taste for adventure through this harmless type of activism. I haven't thought through the exact message of it. It's a craft that is closely connected to women. Maybe it shows the importance of feminine qualities (who doesn't have to be gender specific) in our public spaces.
Perhaps the softness, color and thorough work of a knitted piece represents caring, understanding and patience decorating the dense and rough material underneath. Allowing us to embrace both structure and nurture as two important aspects of a prosperous life.
