It has been an ambition of mine to pay homage to one of Stitches and Hos’ inspirations Knitta. So when we were invited to host a day at The Knitting Salon I knew it was the perfect opportunity to do some knit graffiti.
So, on Saturday myself and some of my knitting chums went over to West Bromwich to take over The Knitting Salon at The Public.
We spent the day attaching our pieces of preprepared knitting to the building, trees and outdoor seats.
Here are some pictures of what we got up to
If you’re over at The Public before 30 October why don’t you see if you can spot all of the pieces of knit graffiti.
Hopefully we’ll get the opportunity to do some more knit graffiti. It was loads of fun – especially the great reaction we got from the people of West Bromwich.
I would like to say a big thank you to the team – Emily, Hamble, Nicola, Amanda, Catherine and Tia who all made such wonderful pieces of knitting to tag The Public. I would also like to say a big thank you to all of the staff at The Public who were really helpful.

Hi… I visted ‘The Public’ yesterday and was delighted to see the yarn storming. Seriously excited. I’ve only ever seen photos online and couldn’t believe it to see real life yarn storming. I’m a crocheter and would totally love to come to the monthly meeting.

I was at The Public a few weeks ago and your knitted pieces around the trees outside the building are still there. Having seem your antics in Birmingham over the weekend I put 2 and 2 together and discovered here that you were responsible for the mystery knit work I saw. Mystery Solved.
Still there in May 2011 – See http://www.flickr.com/photos/sparks68/5677497867/in/photostream
