Urban knitting has been around for some years now but there has been increasing interest in the art. When you think of knitting you think of your grandmother, or even great grandmother rocking back and forth in her chair knitting a sweater for you while a box of Nilla wafers and a glass of 1% sits on the table next to her. No longer. You can replace that image with one of your grandmother wearing a bandana around her face while she covers a bus with a 37 foot colorfully knitted vest.
