The end of life, as we know it, is at hand

VANCOUVER — Vancouver’s urban landscape has become the target of a worldwide craze that is taking knitting and crocheting out of granny’s kitchen and onto the street in the stitching version of graffiti.

From doorknob cosies to knitted tree wraps, the yarn graffiti is showing up in all sorts of public spaces — and in a soon-to-be-released book by Vancouver yarn bombers Leanne Prain and Mandy Moore.

My grandmother would pwn these gals. She would be the Turk 182 of the Yarn Bombers. I had a bad feeling that reference would be too obscure.
