Many knitters out there have heard of Knitta, the renegade group of knitters that started the knitted graffiti craze and have carried it to cities all over the world.   Oh, you haven’t heard?  Well, check it out.  This knitted bus is one of my all-time favorites.  Well Fayetteville’s local Stitch n’ Bitch group and our lovely local yarn store, Hand Held, decided that our fair city needs some knitted graffiti of its own, so Fayetteville, you’ve been yarn bombed.

Yes, this is probably supposed to be completely anonymous, but I couldn’t resist taking some pictures of ladies in action.

And of course, there is a ransom note:

asking the City of Fayetteville to donate the squares to the animal shelter for use as cage blankets once they tire of looking at the colorful fibers.

Tonight in Fayetteville is also First Thursday, which means lots of art, music, film, and a new beer garden.  If you’re interested, you can find more complete details here.  Stop by Hand Held to see some lovely knitted work.  Hope to see your lovely faces!
