Knit to knit you

scenic knit 

The motivation for returning to work after the Thanksgiving break is low. The belly is way too happy and I am all for finding any possible distractions on my various routes to work, caffeine being the main big crutial distraction. 
I have come across these adorable findings all over town. The knit bombers, knit invasion and whatever they are called, I like them a lot. 
My pretty bloggie-friend over in New York Jennine found some super wacky pink-red sweaters, I am very likely to wear myself (the-coveted link) and my buddy Keoki shared a link Berkeley's yarn bomber "the Russian" (berkeleyside link). I am liking this movement of knitted pieces around the interweb, and even better to see them upclose. I'm sure our bikeys love it!

Have you seen any of these around your neighborhood, or bike routes? They are so cool! =)


  1. No,nunca los había visto, son divertidos, los pone la gente?

  2. Eso, la gente los pone y los deja ahí? me encanta!

  3. Further proof that knitters are awesome!

  4. I’ve never seen anything like this in Germany. Are they made out of weather-resistant wool? :)


  5. @joshylola+álvaro/ si, asi es - y al paso del tiempo la figura o longitud de cada pieza va creciendo. que bien no?!

    nicole/ right!?!?!

    zweiraldler/ im pretty sure they are rain-friendly, though we don't typically get tremendous winter weather here in SF at all ;-) we are in high 30°sF and we are freezing! =)

  6. Yay!! Knit bombing! :)
    Your blog really is the best. Bikes, boys, coffee, knitting and a little fashion!
    The best!

    There are a few pieces around Montreal, but it's moreso populated with stenciled spray paint street art by the artist Roadsworth. If you haven't heard of him, Google! He's amazing.

  7. what is better than a daschound in a sweater? a bike rack in a sweater!

  8. I love the sweater poles! I have seen an awesome one in Bernal Heights, it's Giants themed!! I must get a picture!!

  9. So what's the secret of getting those on to the poles? Surely a knitter didn't stand there and knit them? Yes? Lord!

  10. Those are aweeeesome! Never seen anything like that around here but I've just retaken up knitting. Maybe a new project for me to consider ...? ;) I love when people take these little actions to make their city more of a home.


  11. I am so tempted to do that to some of Bham's bike racks and lonely little meters.
    Love the photos, per usual!

  12. I LOVE this! I live in Berkeley and grately appreciate our guy on this side of the Bay & his apprentice (The Russian)! I frequent Cheeseboard on Shattuck in North Berkeley & they have decorated several sign poles there...brillant!


with coffee in hand, sincere thanks for your readership ×
