Guerrilla Knitting on 9th Street

Walking past P.S. 122 on 9th St. in Manhattan yesterday evening, I came across this fun group of guerrilla knitting. I especially like the little "hats" topping the spiky fence.

I'm not so sure how guerrilla it is when the knitters post their names -- isn't tagging a covert op? But a sign posted attributes the installation to about 12 knitters led by a Karen Eubel, and the results are pleasing despite the officialness of it.

I'm also not sure if this group is associated with knittaplease, who is scheduled to come tag 69 parking meters in Brooklyn Heights in mid-May.

Maybe it's a rival knitting gang! What would that show-down look like...?
