Guerrilla grannies knit the city.

When Granny comes to visit she always leaves behind one more beautiful hand-knitted jumper for the children. Granny’s jumpers are stitched with love, and each one  grows into a worn and torn  time-capsule marking an era of Little C or Little M’s life.

While some Grannies are knitting one and purling one  for the grandkids, there are others with something a little different in mind. Guerrilla grannies are hitting the streets – or have the grandkids taken matters into their own hands?

  1. Finally, knitters take action! I would love to repost this on my FB and twitter! Why not add links to your blog!

  2. OH MY!! If I knew how to do this to my own house and car, I’d be bang up-for-it! Total awesomeness!

  3. There’s a fantastic interview with the wonderful Magda Sayeg who started the whole guerilla knitting thing in this months Dumbo Feather Magazine. Jx
