Guerrilla knitters invited to show work in New York
Winter is in full swing, meaning that now could be the perfect time to pick up the knitting patterns and immerse yourself in this creative habit, while also producing some snug designs to keep the family warm.
You may also be inspired by a group of knitters from Cornish town, who have recently hit the news after being invited to show their work in New York, the BBC reports.
These so-called “craftivists” have gained much attention after they took part in a new craze known as “yarn-bombing”, which involves decorating lampposts, signs and benches with knitted cosies and accessories.
The anonymous bunch have since been invited to a show held by Vogue Knitting, after the magazine got in touch with the group through Facebook.
One of the knitters told the BBC: “We thought they were hoaxing us so we ignored them. Then they came back and we thought maybe it was true.”
The Cornish gang of knitting enthusiasts are to begin showcasing their work at Vogue Knitting Live from January 14th.
