SF Giants Stitchbomber Strikes on Crescent Street

It happened yesterday, on Crescent Street.  The yarn-wielding bomber explains how she did it:

I plotted it out on graph paper ahead of time, but because of the major difference btw squares and diamonds, I had to re-adjust on the fly and redo a few spots. Just like with smaller-scale cross stitch, it came to life under my hands and took on a life of its own as I got further along.

Everyone who passed on the street was tickled. One guy said “That looks really cool!” A little girl yelled, “Giants!” And yeah, I realize a major-league baseball logo might seem like a lame public-art project, but in my culturally-diverse neighborhood, this crazy team’s logo really is common ground, guaranteed to make everybody happy.

Best part? I got upstairs and peered out my front window, and voila, two hipsters coming up the street took a picture in front of it. I’m still grinning!

    • Oh, when I was googling to see if other people had had this idea, I did come across a site that recommended doing a dollar sign as a — I dunno what, occupy chain-link fence? The Giants are so beloved, I just knew this’d be the right thing for this spot. Really the other best thing is that every time someone stops to take a picture with it, my daughter asks if that’s Buster Posey.

  1. Was walking my dog when she was there…Was wondering what design she was putting there…
    And now I know…..

  2. excellent to see! I plan on doing hearts along our chain link with all the scrap yarns and wool. sure would be great to see more of this! good job

  3. Very nice. We went to the game yesterday. Zito pitched his 150th win. It was a beautiful day at the park, you can see why they have 121 sell outs in a row. The best record in baseball, because it’s a good time.
