Knit Tagging: The Bison

Have you seen the new book, Yarn Bombing? From the moment I leafed through -- and immediately bought -- this inspiring book I've been unable to pass a pole, a fence, or a bench without seeing it spruced up with a knit tag. How can you not be inspired after seeing the likes of this, or this, or that!? Although this type of public art is typically called yarn bombing or knit graffiti I prefer the less aggressive term "knit tagging", which seems more fitting for this risk-adverse nearly 50 year old. Please let me live under the illusion that I'm not "littering" and am still a good role model for my 7th graders.

For my first knit tag, I took a trip back in time to Bucknell University where the iconic Bison statue guards the field house -- a place of many fond memories for this once-upon-a-time field hockey player. Many thanks to my partner in "crime" RC for doing the actual tagging late one night. I don't know the current fate of this horn cozy, but I do know it lasted at least a couple of weeks.  Can any Bucknell student update the status?

Is that a sock you left on the bison's horn? Or did you tailor something especially for it? I've seen some news articles about knit graffiti, and keep wondering what I should tag....

I hope it was appropriately knitted with bison yarn:)

I caught the tail end of a news story yesterday talking about a town (not ours) looking for "someone" who was knitting items onto poles, benches, etc. around town. Apparently, it's against some law there (party poopers). Just a funny fyi. Knit bomb away I say.

Sometimes I just feel that people write, and do not really have much to say. This is not the case.
