Edit: So I saw this bike chained right outside of the entrance to the Brooklyn Bridge. I was like, what the hell is that, snapped a shot, and then got charged a touristy $1.50 as I grabbed a water from the vendor right next to it.
So here I am, uploading said picture to my blog. I had no idea what this was all about, but someone had notified me of a wikipedia article called “yarn bombing” or better, “guerilla knitting.”
I thought everything made sense until I got a message from a tumblr user with the truth. Thank you cubesofspinach. I now know of Agata Olek and the work she does.
