National Hobbyist Month - Knitting on NPR
On today's show, Sabrina Gschwandtner introduced us to the world of extreme knitting -- guerrilla artists who leave knitted "tags" as a new form of graffiti, people who knit with weird stuff like fiberglass and lead, people who get together for massive knitting parties and cover entire park benches with yarn. Wow. Gschwandtner is the editor KnitKnit, a zine, and the new book KnitKnit: Profiles and Projects from Knitting's New Wave.
