Rainbow Roundabout

On Friday night our knit graffiti faction struck at the heart of a Birmingham suburb.  We met after night fall and covered 48 safety bollards surrounding a roundabout in a rainbow of knitting.

I’m sad to say that at the time of writing (Monday 8 August) most of the pieces from the roundabout had been taken.  I’m always perplexed why anyone would take a piece of knit graffiti.  What are they going to do with it when they get home?

I would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who helped make pieces for the rounabout.  Tsz, Christian, Sara, Catherine, Emily, Vickie, Rhiannon and Teresa.

Mark Wilson has also taken some great shots of the knitting and put them up on Flickr here

One thought on “Rainbow Roundabout

  1. I loved the knit graffiti. It made the roundabout look so beautiful and everyone was smiling on Saturday as they walked past. I was sad to see that it disappeared so quickly, but thank you so much for doing it!
