Getting colder – and wanting to be a bit hip? Knit something!

Let me introduce you to “Stickkontact” – a Swedish hard core guerrilla knitting project. Al knitting is created anonymously – exposed in public – and documented.

Even if it’s carried out without permission I’d never compare it to graffiti. This can be removed within a few minutes – and without causing any harm. It’s a wonderful, playful and highly humorous project radiating a kind, intelligent energy. Anyway, I find it hard not to smile when facing a sculpture like Jannica and the doll’s pram – wearing wrist and legwarmers!
