Yarn-Bombers Stage Daring Infiltration at Precita Playground



Happy New Year!

We begin 2014 with news of a surprise direct-action by members of the knitting underground on two trees located at the eastern end of Precita Park, inside the beloved children’s playground.

Analysts from the FBI and Knitting World magazine have examined the guerilla stitch-work, and determined it to be of exceptionally high quality. No one knows who was responsible for this daring infiltration, but we can say this: They were pros.

Meanwhile, Neighbor Noah reports that denizens of the playground have responded to the yarning with squeals of glee and occasional tree hugs:

    Someone took it down! I found the knitting all water logged and stashed behind a hedge :(

    What kind of savage would remove that lovely show? Probably someone who can’t even knit and pearl. Highly uncivilized.
