I have been gazing longingly at the scaffolding outside my work for a week or so, waiting for the moment where I could adorn one of the many poles that surround the entrance.
I took my chance with this piece of crochet. Quick and easy. It blends in quite a lot with the orange 'danger' tape and grey pole so I may add to the pole art next week with something a bit more vibrant. If I'm feeling ambitious I may dress each pole.

It was actually the coolest tagging that I've done (mine below) as people actually had half a clue what the heck I was doing, courtesy of the Outdoorknit table inside the craft fair being [wo]manned by Knitsch.

A glorious Wellington day makes a good time to do some tagging. My hungover state made me lazy and so i sat as i tagged. Couldn't be arsed standing and doing a tree or pole...though sitting in the sunshine was inspiration to do more, much much more.

So, Craft2.0 was the best fun ever. My large 'arty' tag wasn't quite the right size for any of the poles around so i made do with these two. Along with loads of tiny swatches that got put in goodie bags and handed out to stall holders...

When the staff of the Southern Cross were questioned they showed vague disinterest, "Oh yeah, we saw it after we had a couple of people in for coffee. They looked exhausted. I think they may have been hung over.... I never suspected that those two would be associated with criminal activity" said Sheryl. She also remarked that it took a whole 20 seconds to remove the tag. 20 seconds that she would never get back - such is the heinous effect of this graffiti.
I think this goes to show that no cafe is safe.
Meet the newest member of the team. As yet, unnamed. We are thinking 'Crotchetter'
Meanwhile... I tagged another bike stand.
Island Bay has never been so cosy. Tags basking in the glow of the Empire Cinema. Fab hot chocolates.
I forgot to mention that this tag was a tribute to Crochetter/The Hooker's (name TBC) nana. She writes a fabulous post on a very inspiring woman over here and sort of sums up some of the reasons behind our motivation to create knit graffiti.
What better to do than sit and knit and watch the world go by? A lovely old lady came by with the comment 'no idle hands for you, my dear!' so i told her what i was actually doing...and she thought it was brilliant.
A kid on their bike scooted past and asked, 'What are you doing?' 'Making sure the pole stays warm' I said.

Cuba Mall, Wellington, NZ.
P.S. Your purple tree cosy is still going strong Knitsch. And Civic Square still sports a cosied tree too.
In the middle of the start of Mulgrave St, right outside the Beehive, Wellington NZ.
It actually says 'OUTDOORKNIT' but I didn't quite think it through. Amateur mistake.
Look at the suits go!

Oriental Bay has some new decoration to add to its charm...

See the website to find a place near you...I'll be knitting and hopefully tagging from 2pm near the bucket fountain in Cuba Mall, Wellington. If it's wet, i'll post on here first thing in the AM to give an alternative venue.
Plus a little something to work towards - anyone keen to collaborate?

It's sickly colours and has terribly seaming (as usual) but this tree in Civic Square is now sporting the sweetest of cosies.
Wonder how long this one will stick around... I have a feeling I am trying to make too big a statement.
