I don't know how people can have that much time in their hands to knit frivolous things.
I hardly have time to finish knitting a scarf, what more spend time knitting fruit cosies or stuffed guitars.
But maybe it's simply because I knit far too slowly?
Knitted graffiti is one of those frivolous things that fascinate me though - it's like graffiti-ing a public object, only not with spray paint, but yarn.
Check out this tree:
Essentially frivolous, but oh so funny. And somewhat akin to random sculptures/art pieces in the city. Imagine walking past something like that, in such bright happy colours - I can't help but think it'll brighten your day. And I suppose the damage is not as permanent as spray paint.
Not that I would ever have time to do something like this. I'm still trying to finish a top I started about two months ago.
