knitting at the sea-side

Some more photographs from my trip to the south coast, this time sea-side knitting, decorating the esplanade.

 I have seen photographs of "yarn bombing" or "guerilla knitting" but this was the first time I'd seen the real thing.

Back home, a quick google search revealed that yarn bombing is prevalent throughout Portsmouth and Southsea - pictures here.

More pictures of "yarn bombing" from around the world here.

It's fantastic! I am such a slow knitter, though, that I don't think I could bear to release anything I finished into the wild.

Haha--I'd never heard of this. This is great--so glad you caught it on film for sharing.

I agree, Pomona, I'm quite a slow knitter myself and I wonder how long the knitting looks this good when it is exposed to the weather on the sea front.
I do like the idea of temporary, non damaging, knitting graffiti though!
