Knitta Please…. PLEASE!


Stop the presses!

Have you heard about this group? It could just be that I am finding out about this much after the fact, which is just my style; but I have a news story and some links to share with you.

First heard about this on David Reidy’s podcast and blog, Sticks and String. The podcast is free and available at itunes. You probably know that David is Australian and knits. I have been behind on my podcasts because of trouble with itunes, but finally getting caught up. Tonight I learned about a team of knitting taggers who call themselves “Knittaplease” and place knitted tags around various cities. They have a site at Flickr and a myspace web site. I simply MUST find out more about this group. Here is an article written by the Houston Press about them, called, “Knitta Please!”

This is so amazing and I want to join… or maybe just start doing it here locally. I love this idea…. Knitted Activism!

About dragonmommie

I am a wife and mother of an amazing eight year old boy. When school starts, I don the hat of “advocate”. This is very new to me and so, like everything else in my life right now, a necessary transition. I can see already that I will be honing my communication skills as well as sharpening my assertiveness. I am married to an amazing man, who, spoils me to no end. Not in a material way... NO I'm wrong. When he can, he does spoil me materially as he is well acquainted with my infatuation and love all electronic gadgets. I am a self professed EGG, “Electronic Gadget Groupie.” The most important way he spoils me is with taking over attending to our son's needs. My eye has always been caught by sparkly things, the beautiful, and the unique.

  1. I told the kids knit club at the local school about them & showed them pictures I’d found in one of my knit mags & the kids are talking about doing it the night before our big summer neighbourhood festival right through the centre of Wortley Village. They love the idea of tagging that isn’t vandalism, can be easily removed when it gets unsightly & is initially fun & attractive.

    Hi elanknits….
    Yes, I love that it’s not vandalism, too. I am seriously thinking of going solo one night, myself!

Tell the Dragon what you think.... Any opinions?
