Guerilla knitting, yarn bombing — call it what you like, but knit one, purl one is no longer the preserve of the WI. All over the city, people are whipping their needles out to make not just scarves and blankets, but snuggly covers for trees, railings, and even cars.

For further impressive knitting projects, take a look at Deadly Knitshade's work.
